From the Jewish Women’s League…


Current JWL officers:

The Jewish Women’s League (JWL) enriches the La Crosse Jewish community and supports the synagogue through religious, social and educational functions. The JWL hosts dinners, brunches, Oneg Shabbats, and other programs which bring the Jewish community together to celebrate the holidays and shabatot during the year. The JWL is involved in charitable and cooperative projects which enhance the community-at-large. Proceeds from ongoing JWL fund raising efforts are used in part to beautify and make improvements to the synagogue. Every year the JWL orders and distributes a wide variety of “kosher for Passover” foods, from Matzah and soda pop to sour cream, turkey and candy. The JWL is not affiliated with any national women’s organization. Further information about JWL membership and services can be obtained by contacting the Jewish Women’s League President.

Fall 2017 news:

The Jewish Women’s League participated in the Great River Arts and Crafts Festival on Sun. Aug. 27, selling bakery items and a salad plate.

The Jewish Women’s League is happy to perform the mitzvah of serving meals of consolation to bereaving families.  However, if a family requests the meal to be served at the synagogue, we incur a significant cost since all food must be purchased and prepared in our kitchen.  Therefore, we request a donation to cover the cost of the lunch.

We wish you and your families a happy and healthy New Year.
