Sisters of Beth Am (WRJ)

Temple Beth Am’s WRJ (Women of Reform Judaism) chapter is a diverse group of women whose purpose is to create a supportive community by providing opportunities for building friendships and developing leadership skills. We nurture, sustain, and support this community and Temple Beth Am through social activities that promote the values of Reform Judaism, enable us to perform tikkun olam, and expand the spiritual and intellectual growth of our members. Our goals are:

  • Establish a community of women that is inclusive, non-judgmental, and supportive of a diverse range of women
  • Engage in a variety of regular social activities to promote friendships and build community
  • Foster leadership development among the women of our congregation

When you join Sisters of Beth Am, you become part of a national and international network of 100,000 women in 14 countries who work to create a stronger worldwide Jewish community. You also become a partner in the work of Reform Judaism and its institutions (including the Union of American Hebrew Congregations and ARZA), 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.

Beyond the Election: Moving Forward Together

 
Sunday, January 24, 2021 at 4 PM on Zoom

Join the Sisters of Beth Am for a Zoom program celebrating the historic achievement of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and of women involved with and leading change from a Jewish perspective.

Rabbi Ruth will share Torah insights on Reform Judaism’s core commitment to tikkun olam and social justice.  We’ll hear a presentation by Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner, Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC) in Washington, D.C., highlighting some of the RAC’s key initiatives to educate and empower Reform Jews to advocate for social justice. Finally, we’ll learn from a panel of Beth Am women who have taken action.

Come to be informed and inspired! Please log on at 3:45 PM if you would like to schmooze before the event begins at 4 PM.
