WRJ hosts a variety of events throughout the year for its affiliated members and women of Reform Judaism in North America, Israel, and around the world. These events are meant to educate, inform, inspire, connect, and elevate women’s leadership and spirituality within their communities and the Reform Movement. The organization's flagship event is the WRJ Fried Women's Conference. Each of the WRJ Districts and WRJ's Reform Movement partners also hold events.

The WRJ Fried Women's Conference (FWC), 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 once in a three-year cycle, along with other 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.
