Liaison with WRJ and the Reform Movement
The Northeast District is the link between Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) and Reform sisterhoods and women's groups in Eastern Canada, New England, and New York. We encourage understanding and support of WRJ's programs, as well as participation in WRJ's activities and projects. We also provide direct services and leadership training for our members and sisterhoods through a variety of meetings within the Northeast District each year.

The meeting schedule for the 2023-2026 term will be posted after the convention.

The Northeast District offers many resources to its sisterhoods and women's groups regarding leadership development, membership growth, program ideas, and more. Additionally, WRJ offers a panoply of resources; see WRJ Resources 2022 on Yammer.

We support WRJ's YES Fund (Youth, Education, and Special projects) and our groups sponsor programming for the YES Fund, which supports URJ's summer camps, Reform seminaries, and WRJ initiatives in North America and throughout the world. Read more >
Membership, Dues, and Special Funds
The key to every sisterhood is membership...
Every sisterhood wants to attract more members and potential leaders. The question is: How do we do this? OUR MEMBERSHIP AND DUES PAGE has answers, as well as information about Northeast District dues and the Northeast District Fund, our voluntary fund.
... and the key to membership is marketing
The way to attract new members often depends on how you market your sisterhood. OUR MARKETING TOOLS PAGE contains ideas for spreading the word about your sisterhood in your synagogue and beyond.
