Reform Synagogue Women

THE MOVEMENT FOR REFORM JUDAISM  Reform Synagogue Women (formerly the RSGB Association of  Women’s Guilds) aimed to bring together women in the Reform Movement to  further the understanding and practice of Judaism amongst its members, to exchange ideas and information, to work for inter-racial, interfaith and  communal harmony and to promote the welfare of the needy in their own and the wider communities.    A week used to be set aside each year to raise money for youth and education and to support the Leo Baeck College.   Within the last few years, with women having assumed more active and leadership roles in their synagogues and in the Movement, Guilds no longer exist but Reform women still wish to retain their contacts with other  women’s organisations.
