About WRJ

Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) is a network of progressive Jewish women working together to empower women and communities through the bonds of sisterhood, spirituality, and social justice.

WRJ cultivates sisterhood, empowering Reform Jewish women to find strength, joy, and connection in their communities. 

WRJ inspires spiritual growth by enriching contemporary life with Jewish rituals, traditions, culture, and opportunities for lifelong learning. 

Leading with the principle of Tikkun Olam, WRJ mobilizes collective action on a variety of causes to create a more just and compassionate world for all people of all backgrounds and identities.
