A Message from Atlantic District President, Lori Motis

Dear Sisters,

WRJ Atlantic District President, Lori Motis headshot

Welcome to the WRJ Atlantic District website! Even though we may all be at different stages of our leadership development, the District is here to work toward bringing out women’s potentials. We are working together to help District women in “Reaching New Heights” in the coming term through our programming and outreach efforts.

This website is a great reference guide. We will post our upcoming events here, so check back to keep up to date. There is information in our District Manual about our District, by-laws, policies and procedures, District forms, and contact information. We also have information about opportunities for giving to our two District Funds and our Alumnae group.

Feel free to email to stay in touch. Join our District conference calls, attend District and local area events. Stronger together, we contribute to the Jewish people as we do the work of WRJ and our District.

In Sisterhood,

Lori

WRJ Atlantic Tribute Donation Acknowledgment

Each sisterhood and women's group in the Atlantic District is entitled to a District speaker once every two years. Most sisterhoods request a speaker for their own sisterhood, alone, but you may instead request a speaker for a joint event with one or more other affiliated sisterhoods in your city or local area.

For more information, visit our Speakers Bureau FAQs page.

Now Is The Time to Engage

January 21, 2022
One of the most important ways WRJ connects with our members/the community/the world is through the North America and District Speakers Bureaus. The Speakers Bureau is an interactive initiative that allows us to share information and learn together. Speakers may be a WRJ Board member or officer, a district president, sisterhood member, or community leader that connects with your group. It could be YOU.

Parashah Yitro

January 20, 2022
This week’s Torah portion, Parashah Yitro, sets the stage for our work, reminding us that to create a just and equitable society reflective of our values, we need to share leadership, stand together, and strengthen relationships across lines of difference.

Parashah B'shalach

January 13, 2022
What do we do when we approach a crossroads in our lives? These moments define us. Often the path is not clear and we are unsure of what challenges or opportunities lie ahead. Anticipation, uncertainty, and excitement inhabit our consciousness. Will I make a good decision for myself and others? What would it be like if you were at the shore of the Sea of Reeds on that fateful day when the sea parted? Should we look ahead or behind?
