The votes are in – 2016 Torah Fund Study Day was a huge success.

Through the combined work of a remarkable committee Study Day was planned and finalized. The day attracted 140 women and men. Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson began by speaking about his views for the future of Judaism. Debbi Kaner Goldich, Int. Torah Fund Chair, launched the two-year “She Plants a Seed for the Future” campaign. People rose unexpectedly to make pledges.

The Women’s League Past Presidents said Hamotzi and a lovely brunch began. Jennifer Romano, a student of the Ziegler School led Birkat Hamazon and we all chimed in with exuberant voices and banging on the tables. Next were the Breakout Sessions involving our 5 very special PSW Rabbis: Ed Feinstein (VBS), Felipe Goodman (Beth Sholom, LV), Brian Schuldenfrei (Ner Tamid of South Bay), Deborah Silver (Adat Ari El) and Stewart Vogel (Temple Aliyah).

Watching everyone returning to the Berg Dining Room chatting about what they had just heard was exciting. Then Rabbi Cheryl Peretz took the helm to begin the Panel Discussion with the five Rabbis. She had 3 questions that each one answered. That was the best! It was done with knowledge and a lot of humor on everyone’s part. The camaraderie was so contagious; smiles were painted on the audience’s faces throughout this hour-long session. Everyone wanted more.

The verdict, in a nutshell, was that we as Jews have come through a lot in our history. We wanted to fit in. We have arrived. We have learned that working together, not kvetching together, we can do anything!

PSW Region Torah Fund Vice President
