Women of TRS (WoTRS)

As a multi-generational women’s auxiliary, the Women of TRS (WoTRS) is all about building a vibrant network of friendships. Whether playing mah jongg, sipping bubbly at our annual Mimosa Brunch, learning from nationally and internationally renowned experts on issues related to women’s empowerment, or sharing personal reflections at our annual Shabbat service, WoTRS offers women the chance to connect through advocacy and service work, continuing education, and social gatherings.
