WRJ Core Values
WRJ is dedicated to:
- Strengthening the voice of women and advocating for women’s rights in religious practice and public policy;
- Connecting Jewish women around the world through events and a global network of sisterhoods and women’s groups;
- Nurturing spiritual growth and deepening Jewish engagement by providing program ideas, Torah study guides, and a wide variety of publications on worship, holidays, and more;
- Cultivating the next generation of Reform Jewish leaders through the WRJ Fried Women's Conference, the YES Fund, which includes youth and clergy scholarships, and partnerships with other arms of the Reform Movement.
For over 100 years, WRJ has had an illustrious and extensive history of being at the forefront of social action and change, advancing the role of women in Jewish life, and supporting the growth of Reform institutions around the world. Today, we continue to work tirelessly to support important social justice issues while bringing women together to develop personal relationships, facilitate strong leaders, and create a joyful community of faith.
