WRJ Fried Leadership Conference 2018



WRJ Fried Leadership Conference (FLC) Grants help sisterhoods whose members have not participated in recent past leadership conferences to benefit from the learning, networking, and spiritual growth that happens there. This year, these Grants will send current and/or rising sisterhood leaders to the WRJ Fried Leadership Conference 2017 in Charleston, SC.

“I enjoyed meeting women from all over the country and gained perspective of what my sisterhood is doing right, and what we can improve upon.”

- Jocelyn Kravitz, first-time FLC attendee (2015) from Women of Shir Ami, Newtown, PA

By applying for a grant, all grantees are committing to attend all sessions during FLC.


North American Sisterhoods

Sisterhoods selected to receive a WRJ FLC grant will receive one $375 early bird registration fee for the conference, which covers programming, materials, and meals. Sisterhoods may split the grant funds among two or more women if desired. North American sisterhoods must pay their registration fee initially, and will be reimbursed after completing an online post-conference survey.

  • Will have 1-2 representatives attend the WRJ FLC 2017 and participate in all conference sessions
  • Must not have sent a representative to either of the past two WRJ FLCs: WRJ FLC 2015 in Austin or WRJ FLC 2013 in Cincinnati (Note: WRJ Executive Committee members and WRJ District Presidents do not count as representatives as they are required to attend WRJ FLC, but other WRJ Board members do count.)
  • Must be in good standing with WRJ and their WRJ District
