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

I stand for justice - black lives matter

WRJ is excited to announce a partnership with the Religious Action Center on their Racial Justice Campaign that is focused on combatting voter suppression that particularly suppresses the votes and voices of Communities of Color. We strongly support a vibrant democracy and this is only possible when everyone has the opportunity to participate.

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?

A WRJ Leadership Spotlight!

What I love most about WRJ is the feeling that I make a difference even as an individual. My donations to the YES Fund help, the advocacy work done through the RAC makes our voices heard and the women I meet.
