As a registered 501(c)(3) organization, the mission of the Women’s Rabbinic Network is to…
Support our members through ongoing education, pastoral care, outreach, mentoring, and networking.
Advocate on behalf of our members by being a collective voice to the CCAR, Union of Reform Judaism (URJ), and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) and to the public. We are also a voice for social justice with a unique lens, and an advocate for systemic change.
Provide opportunities for gathering at conventions and regional events, and through conference calls, webinars, and other technologically-based methods.
Provide information to and about our membership, through regular communications such as monthly e-blasts, our own website, Facebook, and other social media.
Promote leadership of women individuals in the administration and on the faculty of the HUC-JIR, and in the leadership of the CCAR and URJ.
Promote scholarship, social justice initiatives, and educational resources on Jewish feminist issues and other issues related to Jewish women.
With clarity of purpose, we will efficiently and effectively:
Advocate regarding women’s issues in the rabbinate and issues of gender and power.
Care by supporting one another during the ages and stages of our lives and by growing healthy relationships within the organization
Communicate in ways that are (a) direct, frequent, regular, clear and user-friendly, (b) help members understand our mission and purpose, and (c) recognize members’ achievements and the ages and stages of our lives.
Build Community. We will gather, learn, and share best practices, plan and run conventions, conduct conference calls on a variety of topics for members, and empower our entire membership to initiate and run programs.
Lead and Govern. Populate the committees and launch their work and clarify the purpose of each board position.
