“This was truly a life transforming experience for me—it impacted my involvement with my congregational sisterhood, passion for doing social justice work, and my Jewish spirituality.”
–Joan Kaspin, Congregation of Reform Judaism Sisterhood, Orlando, FL.
WRJ Fried Women’s Conference (FWC) Grants help sisterhoods, whose members have not participated in recent past leadership conferences, to benefit from the learning, networking, and spiritual growth that happens there. This year, these Grants will send sisterhood women to the WRJ Fried Women’s Conference 2020 in Phoenix, AZ.
By applying for a grant, all grantees are committing to attend all sessions during FWC.
Sisterhoods selected to receive a WRJ FWC grant will receive one $595 early bird registration fee for the conference, which covers programming, materials, and meals. Sisterhoods may split up the grant funds among two or more women if desired. North American sisterhoods must pay their registration fee initially, and will be reimbursed after completing an online survey, after FWC ends.
Eligibility Requirements for North American Sisterhood Applicants:
All women's groups outside North America are eligible to apply for a WRJ FWC 2020 grant. Women's groups selected to receive a grant will have one early bird registration fee of $595 USD waived (must register by February 26, 2020), as well as stipend toward one economy class airfare of up to $1,500 USD, for one women's group member to attend. Grantees will be asked to complete a short online survey after FWC.
