Spring is just around the corner, and with that comes continued planning of district activities. For Women of Reform Judaism and our temple sisterhoods, Spring Kallot and Area Days are vital additions to any district calendar.
Spring Kallah is an important gathering that fills in the gap between district conventions and involves every sisterhood within the district. Area Days take place when a number of sisterhoods within a certain geographical area get together for a few hours, a day or a whole weekend. Area Directors work with the sisterhoods within their areas to help plan programming in which all can participate. Just like Spring Kallot, Area Days are an important part of the yearly cycle of district activities. All districts have Area Days throughout the year.
At Spring Kallot and Area Days, you can:
When sisterhoods get together, whether they are from all over the district or from a specific geographical area, everyone benefits. We all become enriched and learn so much from each other. This just backs up what WRJ means by the motto of “Stronger Together.” If you’re a member of my sisterhood’s area in the Mid-Atlantic District, I’ll see you at our next Area Day!
