Founded in 1922, the Women’s Auxiliary is both a
social and civic organization open to all women of the congregation.
Our Program Committee plans numerous lectures and outings throughout the year, in addition to sponsoring a variety of activities that benefit the greater New York City community.
In addition to the collection of annual dues, the Women’s Auxiliary seeks contributions to its Tribute Fund, which also are used to support the various Women’s Auxiliary initiatives.
