WRJ Jewish Life Lead Block

Jewish Life

Reform Jewish Life, although based on what we glean from the Torah, constitutes more than just  traditional biblical learning. From holiday celebrations and programs to customary foods and Torah study, let WRJ offer you ways to add Jewish teachings, worship, traditions, fresh takes, and customs both old and new to enhance your Jewish life.

There are customs, biblical references, and programs related to each of the Jewish holidays that are based on the Jewish calendar (which is mostly lunar with some solar adjustments) and occur throughout the year.

As our Centennial Salute to the WRJ Cookbook Collection in 2013, we highlighted recipes of foods served on several Jewish holidays as a way to “sample” dishes from the more than 260 WRJ cookbooks at the HUC-JIR Library in Cincinnati, OH.

WRJ was and continues to be an advocate 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.
