You become a partner in the work of Reform Judaism and its institutions, including the Union for Reform Judaism and ARZA -- as well as an advocate of women's and children's rights, and a supporter of endangered Jewish communities. You take a stand on critical domestic and international issues.
WRJ Sisterhood of Temple Emanu-El, an affiliate of Women of Reform Judaism, shall provide for a community of women to foster friendships, spirituality, learning, celebrating Judaism, and support for the children in the Kurn Religious School and our congregation.
Why your Membership in WRJ makes a Difference
Blair Marks, WRJ President, was invited to the White House to attend last Monday's, Working Families Summit. The all-day program was designed to "focus on how we can strengthen our nation's workplace to better support working families, boost businesses' bottom lines, and ensure America's global economic competitiveness in the coming decades."
Blair attended with several members of the staff of the Religious Action Center and members of the Commission on Social Action. The Summit is expected to influence evolving advocacy and social action agendas.
This is yet one more example of why you can be proud to be a member of an organization that continues to promote issues relevant to women and children around the world. Join us now because you count!
Mazal Tov to Carol Blatter, Vice President - Education for WRJ.
The Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) and the Covenant Book Committee, have selected a submission from Carol Blatter for inclusion in the new Covenant of the Generations publication which will be unveiled at the Fried Leadership Conference in Cincinnati, OH, January 25-27, 2013. This will coincide with the kick off of WRJ's Centennial year which makes Carol's poem even more historical. With over 340 submissions Carol's writing was one of the many outstanding submissions.
Please join me in congratulating Carol. To read Carol's poem "Shalom Haver" click here.
