Without YOU we are one woman short!
Founded in 1913 as an affiliate of the Union for Reform Judaism, WRJ strengthens the voice of women worldwide and empowers them to create caring communities, nurture congregations, cultivate personal and spiritual growth, and advocate for and promote progressive Jewish values. To fulfill this vision, WRJ engages tens of thousands of women through a global network of hundreds of sisterhoods and women’s groups. Stronger together, we ensure that these women make a difference in the world.
The Beth David WRJ/Sisterhood is a member of this international organization who now represents more than 65,000 women in nearly 500 women’s groups in North America and around the world. The organization’s mission is to guarantee the future of Reform Judaism by educating and training sisterhood and congregational leadership.
The Vivian Manko Service Award
The Beth David Sisterhood Vivian Manko Service Award is given to a deserving Beth David Sisterhood member who exemplifies the values of service to Sisterhood that Vivian Manko demonstrated over decades of serving on the Sisterhood Board. With great pride, the 2016 Vivian Manko Service Award was given to Lisa Miller.
Gifted at Beth David
Because Jewish life is lived in both the synagogue and the home, we carry Judaica and secular gifts not only for the holidays but also for the milestones of our lives. You’ll be amazed at what we offer! GIFTED is a volunteer project of Beth David’s Sisterhood/Women of Reform Judaism. Open on Sundays when Religious School is in session or by appointment.
