Women's League for Conservative Judaism



The MetroNorth Region of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism is the network for all women who support our mission of enhancing Jewish knowledge, engaging in Jewish life, expanding communal involvement, and supporting klal Yisrael. It is for those who belong to affiliated sisterhoods and those who join directly. As an active arm of the Conservative/Masorti movement and the largest synagogue-based women’s organization worldwide, Women’s League provides service to thousands of women and hundreds of women’s groups.



We have had a wonderful but busy week here in the MetroNorth region!  Yascher Koach to all the women we celebrated and to all the women who worked so very hard on our two Torah Fund events this past week. We celebrated on Sunday afternoon at Sutton Place Synagogue with the women of the Metropolitan Area as we honored Edith Claman, Ruth Murphy, and Vera Winitch.  We celebrated in the Hudson Valley on Wednesday evening at Bet Torah in Mt. Kisco as we honored Susan Ecker, Debbie Erdheim, Shelley Kessler, Beth Grafman, Sheila Reiter, Mimi Rosenstock, Fran Satran, Eva Toth, and Robin Wald.  Thanks to International Torah Fund VP Debbi Kaner Goldich who was able to make the trip in for both events and to Rabbi Lilly Kaufman who was able to join us on Sunday. 


We welcome WL International President Carol Simon to our region this weekend where she will celebrate Sisterhood Shabbat at Nanuet Hebrew Center.  Greenburgh Hebrew Center and Beth El Synagogue Center in New Rochelle are also celebrating with their Sisterhood Shabbat services on Saturday and our region board will be represented at all of these events!  Please see our wonderful new website for more pictures of this week’s Torah Fund events and some are included here for you.  Share them with your Sisterhood/Women’s League friends and “sisters!” 


And just so you know, our raffles this week raised just over $2500 for the special “She Plants a Seed” campaign of Torah Fund so that means that MetroNorth has donated $5000 from these events in two years!  Kol HaKavod to everyone!


Shabbat Shalom!

Still deciding whether to go to Convention?  Thanks to Seaboard region’s Marcia's Toppall's for graciously sharing her Top 10 Reasons to Attend Convention
(Even if you've been there before)

  1. Listen to inspiring speakers like Chancellor Arnold Eisen and Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artsen; study with our scholar in Residence Pamela Nadell.
  1. Attend workshops to benefit yourself and your Sisterhood.; if you are the President, you can't miss out on all the information you will receive.
  1. Network and exchange ideas with women from across the United States and Canada during meals and free time.
  1. Shop at the best Judaica Crafts fair.  Buy yourself a new Tallit or purchase something for your home.
  1. Meet other women from your region at late night parties. Eat too many jelly beans and pretzels.
  1. Wake up early to daven with the world's largest female minyan.
  1. Share the joy at our Jewels in the Crown luncheon honoring our Sisterhoods who have completed a wide range of activities over a three year period.
  1. Celebrate 100 years of Women's League as you witness the Installation of our new officers and Board of Directors; join together as we recall our past and take bold new steps forward into our next 100 years.
  1. Participate in our Mathilda's Mentionables' project as we contribute new and gently used bras to women in need in the Washington DC area.

And the number one reason to attend convention from July 23 -July 26 2017 in Arlington Virginia is to:

  1.  Gift yourself these days of freedom from your daily routine while you engage with, enrich yourself, and empower other Jewish Conservative women. It will be ALL ME (and my Sisterhood) ALL THE TIME.
