I want to tell you about my daughter Abigail. She is a vibrant seven-year-old who loves to dance and sing, color beautiful pictures of our family, swim like a fish, and cuddle with our dog, Pepper. She is so much like me it’s scary. My Grandpa Roy would say she is a tough broad. She is also walking through life, facing challenges in a way I barely knew existed before she came into my life.

Dr. Dana Herman, an archivist in charge of the WRJ Collection at HUC’s Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives (AJA) in Cincinnati, is the 2022 recipient of the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) HUC Faculty Award. By cataloging, preserving, and providing access to these significant historical records, Dr. Herman has ensured that the extensive documentation of WRJ's contributions to the Reform Movement and North American Jewry will live on in the future.
Spring is a time for renewal. For many, it might be the first time being part of a Board, and for others, it might be renewing their commitment as leaders. At the start of the new season, it is time to acknowledge these dedicated women. Here are some tips on how to honor all of these women.
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.
