Support Torah Fund B'Yachad (Together)

What Is Torah Fund?

Since it was established in 1942, Torah Fund, the fundraising arm of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, has provided support to grow and sustain our future.  Through  modest and substantial donations from thousands of individuals, Torah Fund has helped to educate and train generations of Conservative/Masorti rabbis, cantors, scholars, educators, summer camp directors, chaplains, campus Jewish life staff, and committed lay leaders. Torah Fund supports five seminaries located in New York City (JTS), Los Angeles (Ziegler), Jerusalem (Schechter Institutes), Buenos Aires (Seminario Rabinco Latinamericano), and Potsdam (Zacharias Frankel College). During 2020-2021 we depended on these institutions of higher education to assist our leaders in developing creative approaches to keep our congregations active and engaged when we could not meet in person. 

What’s New with this Year’s Campaign?

Due to the challenges caused by the pandemic, Torah Fund will continue the theme of B’Yachad (Together). During these dark days, it was B’Yachad that we celebrated our shared yerushah (heritage) as proud Jewish women affiliated with the Conservative/Masorti Movement. We will continue wearing the B’Yachad pin to signify 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. Although each of us is but one small nugget of gold,  together our combined gifts reflect and refract the light inside us, and help each other shine. 

Please consider making a financial commitment to the future of Conservative Judaism by contributing to Torah Fund in 5782.  You will be among the thousands who annually support Torah Fund – including 55+ Agudas Achim congregants who donated during the 2020-2021 program year.  

Giving is Easy.

The new campaign season begins on July 1, 2021 (and runs through the end of May 2022). Issue a check made out to TORAH FUND and mail it in an envelope addressed to:  TORAH FUND c/o Agudas Achim Congregation, 2908 Valley Drive, Alexandria, VA 22302. (DO NOT MAIL DIRECTLY TO THE NEW YORK OFFICE). You also can donate online.  All contributions, small (there is no minimum) or large, are welcome. Those who donate $180 or more are considered Benefactors or Guardians.

Due to the production and delivery delays caused by the pandemic, Torah Fund will not be issuing new 2021-22 pins for those who donated at the Benefactor level in 2021. New Benefactors (who did not receive a pin in the 2020-21 year) will receive a B’Yachad pin which is to be worn throughout the 2021-2022 program year.  

Questions? Please contact Nancy Siegal. Thank you in advance for your generous support.
