WRJ Lilith Salons
WRJ Lilith Salons bring stimulating discussion about timely Jewish and
feminist issues to sisterhoods around the world so that member can learn
about new topics, understand different perspectives, and engage in
lively conversations. These Salons are comprised of eight or more
sisterhood women who get together four times a year to converse about
thought-provoking articles from the quarterly Lilith magazine, utilizing
WRJ-provided complimentary background articles, prompts, and discussion
Since 2006, the WRJ Lilith Salons program has grown to include more than
60 sisterhoods from across the U.S. and Canada. Participants of these
sisterhood Salons speak highly of their experiences and have repeatedly
mentioned that it’s a key way to involve congregational women who have
never previously attended a sisterhood program.
