TF LogoEvery 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) and the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies (Jerusalem).

The Torah Fund campaign was first launched in 1942 as a scholarship fund. In 1963, it combined with the Mathilde Schechter Residence Hall campaign that provided housing for undergraduate students. Since then, Torah Fund has been a vital source of support for JTS and its students, raising more than 66 million dollars. Thousands of dedicated volunteers have contributed to the spiritual, esthetic and material well being of the JTS community by supporting Torah Fund projects.

Torah Fund Pin 2015-2016
NAT’AH KAREM

TF Pin


Nat’ah karem is a phrase from the beloved prayer Eishet Chayil, taken from the biblical Book of Proverbs. We reenvision this prayer today with appreciation for the hard-working, generous, family-oriented woman who “plants a vineyard by her own labors” (Proverbs 31:7). We honor her productivity, independence, creativity, and orientation to a hopeful future with the 2016 Torah Fund pin/pendant.

For information, please contact your Sisterhood Torah Fund Chair or
Rabbi Abigail Treu at abtreu@jtsa.edu or (212) 678-8876.

Torah Fund & EBay: A New Way to Support an Important Cause

Torah Fund has partnered with eBay to raise funds to benefit Torah Fund’s campaigns and support scholarship projects at the four rabbinical schools. It is easy to do.

1) Select the item you want to sell. If you have a digital camera, take a picture of the item. It helps to sell it.

2) Register as a seller at eBay (www.ebay.com), designating Torah Fund as your charity choice, when asked. You'll need to pick a user name and password (just like when you created your email address).

3) You'll be asked to select a donation percentage (10% - 100%) that will be given to Torah Fund from the proceeds of the sale.

4) Create a brief description and post this information to your listing as directed on the eBay site.

5) When you're notified by eBay that someone has bought your item, wait for payment to arrive before sending the item to the buyer. Then wrap the item and ship it off. The buyer has paid the shipping costs. (There's help on the eBay site to determine the shipping costs.)

6) If you don't want to wrap it yourself, take it to a service store (e.g. UPS).

7) Send the donation percentage to MissionFish, the company that processes these funds for eBay. Torah Fund receives your donation from MissionFish.

8) You keep the remaining proceeds of the sale.

That’s it— your mitzvah is completed. Mission Fish, eBay’s agent, will provide you with a tax receipt for your taxes when you ask for it. Easy stuff!

Your region Torah Fund volunteers are available to help you as well as Torah Fund staff. Also, eBay has a number of help areas and people who can help you with your sale. Your region Torah Fund vice president has a disc available that explains this process step by step. Ask for it!
