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.

As a first- time member, if you join in the months of April, May, or June of any year, you will have membership through the June 30 of the following membership year.

Here’s how to join:
1. Fill out the membership form.

Renewing Membership? If you receive TRS quarterly dues statements, you will see a line item to renew your WoTRS membership on your First Quarter dues statement beginning July 1st.
