Support the ideals and enhance the quality of Jewish living to ensure the future of progressive Judaism in North America, Israel, and around the world.


On January 21, 1913, 156 delegates representing 52 congregational women's groups met in Cincinnati, OH to organise the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods (NFTS, now WRJ). Since then, as a leader in the Reform Movement, WRJ has had an illustrious history promoting women leadership, working tirelessly toward a variety of social justice initiatives, and continuting to expand Progressive Judaism in North America and around the world.

IRD Activities

  • Interfaith Dialogue

    WRJ has actively developed and participated in interreligious and intergroup activities that helped women promote understanding, develop mutual respect, and effectively work together to accomplish mutual goals. Whether joining with other religious women in the peace movement in the 30’s and 40’s, deepening relations with Catholic women following the Second Vatican Council in the 60’s, partnering with women’s groups in African American churches on issues of communal concern in the 80’s, or seeking opportunities for dialogue with the Muslim community after September 11, our women have often led the way in building bridges across lines of faith, race, and ethnicity.
