Women Of Oak Park Temple

The Women of Oak Park Temple is a women’s organization that gathers together in friendship for programs that support the Temple and the larger community, for social activities, for learning and spiritual growth, and above all for personal enrichment, so that each woman may fulfill her potential as a person within a Jewish environment.

Within the Congregation, The Women of Oak Park Temple is the collective presence, voice, and strength for women of all ages and varying stages in life. It is a place where women can meet and work together for the benefit of the Congregation and its members. Here, women can initiate and develop projects in which they have an interest. The Women of OPT provides an outlet for the creative energy, talent, and leadership potential of its members. The Women of OPT also gives women a worldwide identity through its affiliation with Women of Reform Judaism, a federation of 100,000 members throughout the United States, Canada, and overseas.
