Our Structure

WRJ is the organizational umbrella for hundreds of affiliated sisterhoods, with tens of thousands of members across North America, Israel, and around the globe. The North American affiliates are grouped into eight geographic regions called Districts, which serve as liaisons between WRJ and the affiliated sisterhoods. As an integral part of the Reform Movement, WRJ works closely with the Union of Reform Judaism and its affiliates to strengthen Reform Jewish life.

The eight WRJ Districts, which group sisterhoods into geographic regions, act as liaisons between local sisterhoods and WRJ, provide assistance and resources to sisterhoods, and hold a variety of events throughout the year.

Sisterhoods—sometimes called women's groups—are groups of active and engaged women who belong to a Reform Jewish congregation, working together toward a common cause, and are the core of WRJ.

WRJ is proud to consider almost 30 WRJ-affiliated women's groups located in Israel as part of its network; each of these groups runs its own programs but is united toward the WRJ mission and objectives.

WRJ considers women's group from around the world among its ranks, including affiliates in South America and South Africa who help to strengthen global connections amongst Reform and Progressive Jewish women.

WRJ has been a key leader of the Reform Movement, working closely with the URJ and its key affiliates to support, strengthen, and represent the Progressive Jewish community in North America, Israel, and around the world.
