The Young Israel of the West Side Women’s League was founded in 2002 as a way of creating events and programs that reflected the needs of a newly recharged Young Israel community.
Today, we are an organization of women who work together to have a positive impact for all members of The YIWS. We believe that through our collective efforts, we can create programming that will address the diverse needs of our membership as a way to enhance each member's connection to The YIWS community.
In the last few years we have presented lectures, a Chanukah chagigah, a cooking demonstration, wine tastings, flower arranging, challah making, many children's events, organized the shul's Purim festivites and a Mishloach Manot exchange program.
We are especially proud to offer Baby Cakes, a program providing Shabbat and weekday home-cooked meals for YIWS members who have just had a baby as well as our incredible Tot Shabbat program available for all kids on Shabbat mornings. Please check the Calendar page for a preview of our upcoming events.
Please do not hesitate to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about our programs and activities or to get involved. We are constantly thinking of new ways to enrich our YIWS community and we are always looking for new people to join our dynamic team!
