​Sisterhood Supports Torah Fund

The Torah Fund campaign began in 1942 as a scholarship fund and in time, the campaign identified needs, and raised funds, for specific projects, including: Women’s League Educational Pavilion (Kripke Tower), Women’s League Seminary Synagogue, Mathilde Schechter Residence Hall Renovations, Goldsmith Hall, Residence Hall at the American Jewish University, JTS Quadrangle, JTS Library Bookshelves, and Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies Garden.

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) and the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies (Jerusalem) well-being of these educational communities by supporting Torah Fund projects.
