WRJ Districts

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.

WRJ Social Justice Conference 2019

WRJ Social Justice Conference 2019

Join WRJ in Washington, D.C. to learn, grow, and take action at the inaugural Social Justice Conference (SJC)!

The WRJ Social Justice Conference on May 18-19, 2019 is a brief but powerful experience for Jewish women to become better-educated and trained on social justice issues, learn advocacy skills you can utilize at home and on a larger scale, and address timely topics in a welcoming and encouraging, all-female Jewish environment.
