WRJ Districts were established in 1925 in order to serve as liaisons between the local sisterhoods and the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods (NFTS, now WRJ). Initially called “State Federations,” these groups represented sisterhoods located in geographic regions of one to four states, each with a designated number. By 1926, there were 25 Districts that covered sisterhoods in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and Eastern Canada. Sisterhoods were not yet located in Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, or Vermont, and Alaska and Hawaii were not yet states. In 1948, NFTS held its first meeting for these regional groups.
Over time, State Federations expanded, divided, and consolidated to accommodate the growth of WRJ. The new millennium brought an initiative to consolidate and rename the State Federations, replacing the numbered system with geographic designations. Today, eight WRJ Districts group WRJ's affiliated sisterhoods throughout North America, each named for the region they represent: Atlantic, Central, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Northeast, Pacific, Southeast, and Southwest.
