Women's League

Women’s League of TBI brings together women of all ages and stages to share their lives, careers, values and journeys.

The Women's League is involved in a variety of activities, such as fundraising, social events, education programs, and community service projects. 

They play a role in promoting women's participation and leadership in the synagogue. This can include advocating for women to have equal opportunities to participate in religious services and rituals, as well as encouraging women to take on leadership roles within the organization itself.

Overall, the Women's League can be a valuable resource for women in the synagogue community, providing opportunities for social connection, community service, and spiritual growth.

For additional information contact Women's League Co-Presidents, Heather Stein or Rachel Laird.

Torah Fund

Torah Fund is the dedicated philanthropy campaign of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. Your Torah Fund contribution strengthens and perpetuates Conservative/Masorti Judaism throughout the world. The campaign ensures our legacy to future generations of Conservative Jews by providing funds to Rabbis, Cantors, Educators, Administrators, Social Workers, Scholars and Professional/Lay Leaders.

Each year we host a brunch to celebrate your contributions at many levels. A beautiful pin is our gift to you with a donation of $180 or more. For more information contact Ellen Braun, Torah Fund Chair. 

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 the 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 the 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 2022-2023 is Chazak v’ Ematz which means “be strong and courageous.” 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!
