Torah Fund Campaign of Women's League for Conservative Judaism is a grassroots fundraising campaign dedicated to perpetuating Conservative / Masorti Judaism by supporting its seminaries:

  • The Jewish Theological Seminary, New York, New York
  • Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, Los Angeles, California
  • Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies, Jerusalem
  • Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano, Buenas Aires

The Torah Fund of Women's League for Conservative Judaism campaign was first launched in 1942 as a scholarship fund. In 1963, it combined with the Mathilde Schechter Residence Hall campaign, which provided housing for undergraduate students at JTS. Since the, Torah Fund has raised more than $90 million, raising an almost $2 million in annual support.

This year, 2015-16 (5776), our theme is Nat’ah karem, a phrase from the beloved prayer Eishet Chayil, taken from the biblical book of Proverbs. We re-envision 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 her orientation to a hopeful future with the 2016 Torah Fund pin/pendant.

The one value that we do share is our love of Judaism and Jewish education. It is because of this that we all benefit from the graduates of the schools that our Torah Fund campaign supports. Whether your Rabbi, Cantor, Educational Director, or your lay leadership graduated from the Jewish Theological Seminary, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies, or the Seminario Rabbinico Latinoamericano, our Torah Fund dollars were and continue to be so you are to our 5776 Torah Fund campaign!
