April 12-14, 2016 - London, UK

The WRJ Wilkenfeld International Women's Leadership Seminar 2016 was presented by WRJ in cooperation with the World Union for Progressive Judaism (WUPJ) and the European Union for Progressive Judaism (EUPJ). The purpose of this inaugural Seminar was to help Reform/Progressive Jewish women from around the world learn leadership skills and encourage them to take on leadership roles in their home communities.


  • Learned the "why" and "how" of leadership
  • Met Reform/Progressive Jewish women from near and far: 20 women from 15 different countries!
  • Established a new global network for contact and support
  • Matched up with a mentor from WUPJ or another Movement partner
  • Left with skills and detailed action plans to use in their home communities

WRJ conducts periodic video calls to check in with the Seminar attendees and keep up to date with their progress.
