Ladies Concordia Society

Ladies Concordia Society

Organized December 23, 1872, our Ladies Concordia Society is one of the oldest active Sisterhoods in the country.  We are the multi-generational women’s auxiliary of the Temple of Israel. 

 Our focus is to cultivate the religious, educational, and civic interests of our members; to promote fellowship; to further the needs of the congregation; and to advance the program and purpose of the Women of Reform Judaism.

Ladies Concordia Society takes pride in offering a full range of programs for our members all year round, with varying monthly program times to allow for more participation in activities as schedules permit.

Sisterhood is actively involved in raising funds throughout the year to help meet the needs of our Temple and Religious School.
