Our sisterhood is comprised of a whole cadre of vibrant, interesting and generous women who work fulfilling the mission while enjoying each others company and their endeavors. Ninety-five percent of the Temple women are members who engage in educational, religious, scholarship, community outreach and support, and fun social programs.
