Spirituality

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.

Spirituality, 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 spirituality.

Jewish Teachings, Holidays, and Traditions

Torah Study

WRJ has always advocated 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. In this section, you will find our Divrei Torah, Torah study guides, and so much more!

Jewish Holidays

Chag Sameach! (Happy Holiday!) There are customs, biblical references, and programs related to each Jewish holiday based on the Jewish calendar and occur throughout the year.

Food & Recipes

Food is central to Jewish custom and observance. The WRJ Cookbook Collection houses more than 327 cookbooks from different sisterhoods. The cookbooks reflect the sisterhood, the times, and the culture of congregations. They also offer insights into the women who share their recipes.
