Torah Study

WRJ is pleased to offer many ways to study Torah, including our weekly D'var Torah entitled, Voices of WRJ on our blog. 

WRJ has always advocated for equal rights for women in Jewish learning and worship, bringing a unique, feminist perspective to Reform Jewish study and providing resources from which to learn and pray.

The Sages taught that the study of Torah is equal to all the other mitzvot combined. One of the basic tenets of Judaism, Torah study is particularly significant to WRJ.
