Welcome to WRJ Mid-Atlantic District!

A Welcome Letter from District President, Marilyn Morrison

Welcome to the WRJ Mid-Atlantic District website. This is your portal to see what we are all about. Our mission is strong and clear: helping sisterhoods/women’s groups participate effectively in the activities and goals of WRJ; assisting in the organization of new sisterhoods/women’s groups; bringing the sisterhoods/women’s groups into closer cooperation and association with one another to further their respective activities, and helping our sisterhoods/women’s groups achieve their highest potential. We are the link between WRJ and the local sisterhood group.

The District provides ongoing training, support, and hands-on assistance for our sisterhoods. Look around this site and check back often for new information about area days and other district and regional functions.

In Sisterhood,
Marilyn Morrison, President

The Facts About Abortion

June 24, 2022
FACT: Life begins at birth. FACT: Until birth, the fetus is part of the mother. FACT: The life and well-being of the mother will always take precedence over the fetus until the point at which the fetus's head fully emerges from the womb, and it becomes a living baby. These are the facts as I believe them to be, based on my faith, tradition, and understanding of Jewish law. While I understand that some people may hold different religious views, they are not binding on me. Until now.
