US Women

About US Women

US Women is the group for women within the United Synagogue and under the halachic authority of the Chief Rabbi. US Women represents all female members of the United Synagogue. Our purpose is to Educate, Empower and Engage women within the US community in all areas of Judaism including lay leadership, religious practice and social action.  We liaise closely with the Office of the Chief Rabbi, the Rabbonim and the leadership of the United Synagogue to promote and advocate the views of women within the whole community bearing in mind the diversity of requirements of the women with our US community.

Claire Lemer and Jacqui Zinkin are the co-chairs of US Women and are both current Trustees of the United Synagogue.
