WRJ Believes in the Power of Community

We are a network of Jewish women working together to empower women and communities through the bonds of sisterhood, spirituality, and social justice. Learn More!

Havdalah and Conversation

Join WRJ for a Havdalah ritual and an open conversation about the Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization to overturn Roe v. Wade, stripping abortion access from millions across the country. Come for a community gathering to sing, worship, share, and connect with others as we process this news.

Virtual Lilith Salon

Join us for our Virtual Lilith Salon where we will discuss the articles "How to Visit" and "Portraits of Power: Celebrating 50 Years of Women in the Rabbinate." Thanks to Peggy Martin for facilitating this discussion.

Advocacy and WRJ

WRJ is a leading advocate for abortion access and reproductive health and continues to oppose state and federal restrictions that limit access to birth control and safe abortion services. See WRJ in action on our Advocacy page. 

WRJ's mission is to strengthen women's voices and empower them to advocate for and promote progressive Jewish values. The WRJ Women's Empowerment Awards is designed to recognize those women who embody our mission through their actions. 

On May 13, 2022, we honored 12 women who make a difference and help change lives daily through their strength, dedication, compassion, and hard work. Please take a minute to enjoy the event photos

The Facts About Abortion

June 24, 2022
FACT: Life begins at birth. FACT: Until birth, the fetus is part of the mother. FACT: The life and well-being of the mother will always take precedence over the fetus until the point at which the fetus's head fully emerges from the womb, and it becomes a living baby. These are the facts as I believe them to be, based on my faith, tradition, and understanding of Jewish law. While I understand that some people may hold different religious views, they are not binding on me. Until now.

Torah Study

WRJ has always advocated for equal rights for women in Jewish learning and worship, bringing a unique, feminist perspective to Reform Jewish study and providing resources from which to learn and pray. In this section, you will find our Divrei Torah, Torah study guides, and so much more!
