WRJ hosts a variety of events throughout the year for its affiliated members and for women of Progressive Judaism in North America, in Israel, and around the world, which are are meant to educate, inform, inspire, connect and elevate women’s leadership and spirituality within their communities and the wider Reform Movement. The organization's two flagship events are the WRJ Assembly and WRJ Fried Leadership Conference, and each of the WRJ Districts as well as WRJ's Reform Movement partners also holds events.

The WRJ Fried Women's Conference (FLC), held annually, is your opportunity to hone leadership skills and deepen connections with other sisterhoods, leaders, and WRJ.

The eight WRJ Districts hold many of their own events, each with a flagship WRJ District Convention held biennially during even-numbered years, along with other regularly-scheduled events, such as Area Days, Retreats, and Shabbatons.

The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) and other affiliates hold conferences and workshops for Reform Jewish leaders and participants; these events help our women, and their families and communities, grow and thrive as Progressive Jews.

The WRJ Wilkenfeld International Women's Leadership Seminar is an intimate leadership training seminar, made possible in part by a generous gift by WRJ Past President Dolores K. Wilkenfeld.

The Biennial Assembly is the Reform Movement’s one-of-a-kind, five-day experience for Reform/Progressive attendees from around the world held in odd-numbered years. WRJ still has a presence at the largest Movement event, although it no longer includes a stand-alone WRJ Assembly.
