About WRJ Philanthropy
Through a combination of planned fundraisers and donations, WRJ has raised millions of dollars to support and strengthen the Reform Movement and to provide aid to affiliated sisterhoods and congregations. Support for WRJ is filtered through various funds with the focus designated to general support, WRJ’s philanthropic arm (part of which includes WRJ’s YES Fund), and the social justice fund.
Women's Empowerment Awards
WRJ's mission is to strengthen the voices of women 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. Nominations are now open for women who lift up the voices of other women and girls, leaving a lasting impact on lives, locally, regionally, or worldwide.
This year, we welcome CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash as our keynote speaker for this year's event.
Philanthropy & Sisterhood
One of WRJ’s core values is to support sisterhoods’ connection to their communities and encourage their work locally. We provide Incubator Grants to our sisterhoods, funding programming that promotes an “outside-the-box” mentality, encouraging tikkun olam, spreading Reform Jewish values, creating caring communities, and cultivating spiritual or personal growth in its participants. In the same spirit, WRJ is committed to expanding its reach and connecting Jewish women worldwide.
