TORAH FUND

Every woman has the opportunity to participate in preserving, promoting and perpetuating Conservative/Masorti Judaism through active giving to the Torah Fund Campaign of Women’s League in support of the Jewish Theological Seminary (New York, NY), Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies (Los Angeles, CA), Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies (Jerusalem), Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano (Buenos Aires, Argentina), and Zacharias Frankel College (Potsdam, Germany).

The Torah Fund campaign began in 1942 as a scholarship fund. In 1963, it merged with the Mathilde Schechter Residence Hall campaign that provided housing for undergraduate students. In time, the campaign identified needs and raised funds for specific projects, including:

  • Women’s League Educational Pavilion (Kripke Tower)
  • Women’s League Seminary Synagogue
  • Mathilde Schechter Residence Hall Renovations
  • Goldsmith Hall
  • Residence Hall at the American Jewish University
  • JTS Quadrangle
  • JTS Library Bookshelves
  • Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies Garden

For the past several years, funds raised by Torah Fund have gone toward scholarships to all the schools. There are continuing opportunities for sisterhoods and individuals to provide support to all five institutions through Torah Fund. Resultantly, thousands of dedicated volunteers have contributed to the spiritual, aesthetic and material well being of these educational communities by supporting Torah Fund projects.

The Torah Fund theme for 2020–2021 is B’Yachad, which means ‘Together’. This theme signifies the joy of sisterhood members working together year-round to make important contributions to the Jewish community through their volunteer efforts at synagogues across the United States and Canada. Our pride in being Jewish shows in everything we do. We are high achievers in our professional and personal lives, and we accomplish even more together! Each of us is one small nugget of gold, but together our small gifts reflect and refract the light inside us and help each other shine. Together, since 1942, the modest contributions of thousands of individuals to this grassroots fundraising effort called Torah Fund have helped to educate and train each generation of rabbis, cantors, scholars, educators, summer camp directors, chaplains, campus Jewish life staff, and committed lay leaders. These are the people who guide and teach, console and uplift our people, one soul at a time, whether in person or remotely, during these challenging times. We make this happen together. Join us!

Z’havah

Join us for an incredible year of creative programming designed for women 30ish to 50ish—keeping in mind your interests, your schedules, and your obligations. Who we are We are young women of diverse backgrounds and interests: some work full-time, part-time, or stay-at-home; some have children in preschool and some at college; and some are single, divorced, have significant others, newly-married or have been married for a while. Wherever we are in life, one thing is certain: Z’havah is the means for you to develop lasting friendships, enrich your lives, expand your community, learn new skills, and help others.  This year's gatherings range from Dinner in the Sukkah to local hikes, and from volunteering at a local charitable organization to a spa day in the Salt Caves.  

To learn about our upcoming events and to get more information or to get involved, please contact co-chairs: Jen Jacobs (jkline6@hotmail.com) or Lauren  Siegel (laurenlevy@hotmail.com)
