Torah Fund Greeting Cards Available!
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. This year's pin, with the theme "Mah Tovu" ('how good!') celebrates the 100th anniversary of Women's League. They are introducing five beautiful new greeting cards which are available in the TBI Gift Shop. Preview them here, and support our seminaries with your purchase. Preview the pin below. Contact Terri Wolfman for details.
Mah tovu, which means “how good!”, is a phrase that originates in the Torah, in Numbers 24:5. Quoted in our prayer book, it forms the basis of the opening prayer that is sung when we enter the synagogue.
The full phrase is Mah tovu ohalecha Yaakov, mishk’notecha Yisrael, “How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwellings, O Israel!” It is a spontaneous exclamation of joy and appreciation, said when gazing at the nation of Israel, dwelling in peace and mutual respect. As we celebrate the beginning of the 100th year of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism and the end of the 75th year of the Torah Fund Campaign, we count our many blessings as individuals within the community of Israel. We are blessed in our synagogues with depth of learning, prayer, and acts of kindness that bind us together; with communal leaders who are thoughtful and learned; with children and grandchildren who make us smile; and with the love of family and friends — especially our Women’s League sisters — who are such a strong support to us.
How good are all these blessings in our lives!
The pin, featuring the number 100 in raised letters and encased in a silver frame, is a treasured keepsake of the Women’s League centennial celebration to wear with pride!
Z’havah 5777 (2017 – 2018)
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.
