WRJ Blue logoWRJ

Our Sisterhood is proud to be an affiliate of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), Southwest District. The WRJ celebrated its CENTENNIAL year in 2013! The WRJ provides fantastic resources for programming, membership, budgets, a women’s Torah commentary, support for Youth, Education, and Special Projects and much, much, more. From its beginning, the WRJ has been vocal and successful in fighting for women’s right to vote, building a dormitory for rabbinical students at the original HUC Cincinnati campus, AND…the creation of NFTY!

WRJ Roll of Honor

Our Sisterhood Rocks Again! We achieved the Roll of Honor from WRJ (Women of Reform Judaism) for our contributions to the YES Fund in the year 2016-2017. The YES fund is the WRJ Youth, Education, and Special Projects program. It provides scholarships for rabbinical and cantorial students, funding for URJ camps, founded the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY), and advances WRJ’s mission of strengthening Reform Judaism in North America, in Israel, and around the world.
