Today is April 30, 2017 -
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!
