Why We Are Renaming the Social Justice Fund
Social justice has been a pillar of WRJ throughout its 100+ years and is a key issue that Marla has advanced and championed during her 40-year career, including her prior roles in the Reform Movement. It is WRJ's honor to name its Social Justice Fund after Marla.
Our voice has never been more important than it is now. Your support of the Rabbi Marla J. Feldman Social Justice Fund will honor Marla's commitment to this cause and allow us to continue to engage women around timely issues and train them as leaders in the pursuit of justice.

Rabbi Marla J. Feldman's Career and Retirement
Over a hundred people came out to celebrate the career and retirement of its Executive Director, Rabbi Marla J. Feldman, on April 20, 2023, at the Sheraton Suites Hotel at Chicago O’Hare.
There was a celebration dinner and tributes to Marla from several Reform Movement leaders. We enjoyed a special concert by renowned Jewish musician, composer, and producer Beth Schafer, along with WRJ's signature choir.
Thank you to WRJ Past Presidents Blair C. Marks, Lynn Magid Lazar, and Susan C. Bass for chairing this celebratory event.
