Northeast District Convention Wrap-Up

Northeast District Convention Wrap Up

Our four day Northeast District Convention in March was AMAZING!  It was nice to feel like we were getting back to the warmth and joy of having an in-person convention.  Special thanks go to convention chair Michelle Rosen and the MANY committees for creating such an incredible weekend.  Betty Weiner organized a very successful YES Fund luncheon and online auction.  From services to learning sessions to chocolate tasting to meals to just being together, the weekend felt magical.  We had several special guests from both the WRJ North American board and the WRJ main office.  Special thanks to our guest for the weekend, Judy Wexler - WRJ VP, and to our fantastic spiritual and musical guest, Rabbi Deborah Zecher.  We had many new attendees with us for the convention and were so happy to get to know them.  We were also proud to have both WRJ Executive Director - Rabbi Marla Feldman and WRJ President Sara Charney who both just happen to be Northeast District members.

Learning & Traveling with WRJ

June 2, 2023
Besides traveling with friends and being with our amazing educator, Shari Robins, what makes these tours especially appealing to me are the opportunities to meet with our partner and beneficiary organizations. There’s nothing quite like seeing our YES Fund dollars in action and hearing from those whose lives are impacted by our work. In addition, we often visit sites off the beaten path where many other groups and individuals wouldn’t know to go.

  • Ways to create community for yourself and/or your sisterhood with Women of Reform Judaism members throughout the district and North America
  • Information on upcoming programs and events held within our district and from WRJ North America
    • These programs provide opportunities for you and your sisterhood to connect through engagement on Zoom, at regional conferences and local gatherings
  • Tools and resources for leadership development
  • Access to district leaders to help support you as advisors, consultants, and program speakers
