WRJ Spirituality 2023
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.
The Sages taught that the study of Torah is equal to all the other mitzvot combined. One of the basic tenets of Judaism, Torah study is particularly significant to WRJ.
WRJ is pleased to offer many ways to study Torah, including our weekly D'var Torah entitled, Voices of WRJ on our blog.

Covenant Book Series
As Jewish women, we rely on books for advice, enjoyment, and fulfillment. Some of our most popular publications - the WRJ Covenant Series - features original, inspirational prayers and readings written by sisterhood women, students, and clergy.
The Torah: A Women's Commentary
Check out this WRJ commissioned the work of the world's leading Jewish female Bible scholars, rabbis, cantors, theologians, and others which resulted in the first comprehensive Torah commentary to be authored only by women. Torah Commentaries can also be found here.
Completed in 2001, the Torat Nashim is the WRJ Torah that travels to sisterhoods, congregations, WRJ Districts, URJ summer camps, and other Reform Movement organizations for conventions and special occasions.
In 2013, in honor of WRJ’s Centennial, we published 12 Divrei Torah for use by WRJ sisterhoods at meetings and other events.
