The Northeast District is one of the eight districts of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), an affiliate of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ). WRJ is the collective voice and presence of women in congregational life. Stronger together, we support the ideals and enhance the quality of Jewish living to ensure the future of progressive Judaism in North America, Israel, and around the world.

Convention is coming, and the "Food Flirts" are coming to convention! Marilynn and Sheila Brass – cookbook authors, television producers, and stars of the PBS cooking series The Food Flirts – will delight us with tales of their combined 132 years of cooking and baking experience.
(Here's a sneak peek of The Food Flirts...)
CONVENTION IS COMING! I am so excited – our planning is well under way. This will be a wonderful convention with exciting guests, fabulous services, a lovely concert on Saturday evening, and of course, stimulating and helpful workshops.
I have always enjoyed going to our district conventions. Each time I go, I meet new people and learn a lot! When I was a sisterhood president, I found them invaluable. It was at these conventions that I learned more about the nuts and bolts of being a good president, such as how to find new leaders, how to deal with conflict, and about new and exciting programs. You will be able to find all these and more!
Even if you aren’t a sisterhood president, you will find plenty to interest you. Share experiences with other women from around the district, make new friends, learn how to run a book club, enjoy some Jewish meditation, learn more about WRJ and what we are up to (particularly with advocacy), and be reinvigorated. And take home what you have learned, so that you can share with your sisterhood.
The committee is working very hard so that we can have the best convention ever. Come and join us – I would love to schmooze with you.
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your district president. I have been lucky to be part of such a wonderful group of dedicated women. My term will end at this convention, as our new board is installed.
I wish you all a wonderful and happy New Year. May we all be blessed with joy and health in the coming year.
