There are a variety of awards and grants available for WRJ affiliated sisterhoods who have shown effective leadership skills, brought innovative programming to their communities, or are looking to engage membership through the development of skills and furthering of education.

These biennial awards for Special Achievement in Programming recognize exemplary social justice, community service, and educational programming that serves as a model for other WRJ Districts and sisterhoods.

WRJ Social Justice Conference (SJC) Grants are aimed to engage WRJ members who have an interest or background in social justice.

Established during WRJ's Centennial year, this award recognizes members who have never been officially honored but who have helped advance WRJ’s goals of promoting women’s issues and leadership in the Movement.

Given biennially, the YES Fund Awards & YES Fund Honor Roll recognize sisterhoods that make significant contributions toward the YES Fund, to strengthen the Reform Movement and ensure the future of Reform Judaism.

These grants help sisterhoods whose members have not been able to participate in past leadership conferences to benefit from the learning, networking, and spiritual growth that happens at this biennial event.
