Our Leadership

Since 1913, the WRJ leaders have carved out a place for women in Reform Jewish life, beginning at a time when women could not serve as rabbis or on congregational boards. WRJ's influential, hard-working, and successful leadership team includes the Board of Directors (which includes the Executive Committee, and District Presidents) as well as an active Board Alumni group.

Elected in March 2018, WRJ President Susan C. Bass has been actively involved in WRJ since becoming local sisterhood president in the late 1980s and has held a variety of positions on the local, District, and North American level.

The Board helps articulate and promote the organization’s vision, develop and implement major initiatives and policies, inspire women leaders, and consult on project strategy essential to the organization’s success.

Created in 2010, the WRJ Chai Society helps WRJ Board alumnae continue their involvement with WRJ, mentor and inspire rising leaders in the organization, and make a difference in the Reform Movement and beyond.
