WRJ's Annual Report

We hope you enjoy this annual report, which provides a snapshot of all that WRJ has accomplished over the past few years and our dreams for the future. Explore our three pillars of sisterhood, spirituality, and social justice and how they empower our leaders and communities in North America and worldwide. 

A Conversation with Rabbi Miri Gold

Rabbi Gold was the central complainant in a seven-year court battle led by the Israel Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. In 2012, she won the right to become the first non-Orthodox regional rabbi to draw a salary from the government. Rabbi Gold will share her story on June 6th.

Film, Fiction, and Fine Wine - Author Event

We are thrilled to have Martha Hall Kelly join us on June 8th to discuss her new book, "The Golden Doves." Inspired by true events, this book is about two former female spies, bound together by their past, who risk everything to hunt down an infamous Nazi doctor in the aftermath of World War II.

Pay Equity Webinar

Join WRJ on June 14th for a conversation about understanding your own value and self-worth at work and advocating for pay equity and paid family and medical leave policies. Rabbi Mary Zamore, Executive Director of the Women’s Rabbinic Network, will host a fireside chat with Dr. Amy Beacom, Ed.D., founder and CEO of the Center for Parental Leave Leadership.

Leading with the principle of Tikkun Olam, WRJ mobilizes collective action for various causes to create a more just and compassionate world for people of all backgrounds and identities. From abortion access to sexual harassment and assault to pay equity and racial justice, WRJ empowers women to use their voices and cultivate the next generation of Reform Jewish leaders through education, advocacy, and action.

Connecting with Women from Around the World

June 2, 2023
In a classroom in Jerusalem, 15 remarkable women came together. They had traveled from around the world: from Australia, Argentina, Poland, Hungary, the UK, and Israel. Joined by four WRJ leaders from North America, and our educator from Israel, this was the WRJ Wilkenfeld International Women’s Leadership Seminar 2023.

Learning & Traveling with WRJ

June 2, 2023
Besides traveling with friends and being with our amazing educator, Shari Robins, what makes these tours especially appealing to me are the opportunities to meet with our partner and beneficiary organizations. There’s nothing quite like seeing our YES Fund dollars in action and hearing from those whose lives are impacted by our work. In addition, we often visit sites off the beaten path where many other groups and individuals wouldn’t know to go.
