Torah Fund

Torah Fund is a Women's League initiative to support Conservative seminaries.  Each year, donors of $180 or more receive a beautiful pin as a thank you gift. The 5780 (2019-2020) Torah Fund pin depicts a heart surrounded by three circles, one larger than the next. This symbolizes the heart of kindness, which Jews enact in ever-widening realms of generosity: from family, to community, to the larger world; from North America, to Israel, to the world; or from sisterhood, to region, to the larger world of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. And as it is said in Psalm 89, may we build a world of kindness.  The word Chesed is also on this year's pin. Chesed means “kindness” in Hebrew. The word can also be translated as “lovingkindness,” to convey the deep love that animates Jewish acts of kindness, done without thought of reward.  

By making your donation of $180 or more, you  will be committing an act of Chesed and you will be able to show your support by wearing this lovely pin.


Torah Fund Greeting Cards Available!

Another way to support Torah Fund is by purchasing five beautiful greeting cards which are available in the TBI Gift Shop. Preview them there, and support our seminaries with your purchase.  Preview the pin below. Contact Terri Wolfman for details.

For more information, please contact our Torah Fund Chair, Terri Wolfman at [email protected] 

Z’havah 5780 (2019 – 2020)

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 ([email protected]) or Lauren  Siegel ([email protected])
