Spring is here! It must be time to begin the Rummage Treasure Hunt. The clothes you haven't worn in a year or two, the kind birthday gift that just wasn't "you", toys the kids have outgrown, the kitchenware you replaced bud didn't have the heart to throw away. They will be treasure to someone else at the TBI Women's League Rummage Sale. WE'RE NOT ACCEPTING DONATIONS UNTIL MID-JUNE, but invite you to prepare by clearing out and organizing as you do your Spring cleaning. The sale will be at the end of June. Watch for drop-off and sale dates. Volunteers, please contact Ceil Cable or Susan Pullman

 

Torah Fund

Torah Fund Greeting Cards Available Soon

Torah Fund is a Women's League initiative to support Conservative seminaries.  They are introducing five beautiful new greeting cards which will be available soon in the TBI Gift Shop. Preview them here, and support our seminaries with your purchase.  Contact Terri Wolfman for details.

 

P'ri yadehah, which means "the fruit of her hands", is a phrase from Eishet Chayil in the book of Proverbs (31:31)

To commemorate the 100th year of Women's League for Conservative Judaism and the 75th year of the Torah Fund Campaign, we celebrate women's achievements through creativity - the fruit of her hands - in the family, workplace, home, synagogue and community. Women dedicate their lives as volunteers, as leaders in the Jewish and secular worlds, as scholars, scientists, artists, business leaders, and more.  The wheat branch featured in the 2017 pin/pendant signifies the sustenance we wish for all our family and friends, and the olive branch represents our prayers for peace.  This year's pin for 5777 is our gift to you for a donation of $180 or more.  But please remember that a donation for any amount to Torah Fund will help ensure our legacy to future generations of Conservative Jews.  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), and Zacharias Frankel College (Potsdam).  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 four institutions through Torah Fund.

For more information, please contact our Torah Fund Co-Chairs Terri Wolfman at [email protected] or Debbie Goldberg at [email protected].

Z’havah 5777 (2016 – 2017)

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.
