A Mother's Day Call to Action

I am a mom. It is one piece of my identity (see also: spouse, daughter, rabbi, Reform Jew) and it is an important part of who I am, today and every day. Creating a better world for our kids is what drives me each day.

Why WRJ? My Leadership Journey

My journey with Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) began in 1999 in Chicago, Illinois. The sisterhood at my congregation had been floundering and then disbanded. The senior rabbi asked me to help re-establish the women’s group. I was honored, excited, and frightened all at the same time.
