Purim with a Purpose a Fine Success!

The Religious Schools connect students to Torah, values, traditions, and customs while becoming a part of a vibrant and welcoming community. Purim with a Purpose is a perfect opportunity to live out that mission. This year, students created more than 600 care packages for our Karsh Family Social Service Center clients, enjoyed an incredible Jason Mesches Purim spiel, ate lots of hamantaschen, and participated in some raucous Purim fun!

With that, in September 2016, Women of Wilshire was born. Nearly three years, more than 50 programs, and hundreds of new friendships later, WOW is a thriving part of Wilshire Boulevard Temple. Here we introduce new leadership for the coming year of programming!
