Women's Connection LogoOur Mission:

To foster a community of women through programs that educate, inform, and enhance its members’ intellectual and spiritual lives, while kindling bonds of friendship. This mission is accomplished within the framework of the values of Recnonstructionism and the infrastructure of  University Synagogue.

The Women’s Connection donates its program revenues to the synagogue for  various projects, such as dues scholarships for women called “Women Helping Women,” landscaping and decorating projects, and high holiday and Friday night musicians.

Our Sprcial Events (for more details, click link at top of page)

  • Annual Women’s Seder
  • Discussions and speakers on issues important to women, such as our Mindfulness program and “Empowering Women” series
  • Mah Jongg and Bridge Day

Meet New People And Enjoy Fun Activities

One of the best parts of University Synagogue Women’s Connection is our  activity groups.  We have a wide range of groups, which consist of women who share a similar interest and meet periodically to socialize and enjoy that interest.  In this way we are able to enjoy each other’s company in smaller groups and activities, as well as at our larger meetings and events.

Each activity group decides how frequently they wish to meet and what they will do at their meetings.  If you are interested in more information about any of the Women’s Connection groups, please contact the group coordinator below.
