ABOUT US

 

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.

A NOTE FROM OUR REGION PRESIDENT

Convention 2017
 
This year’s Convention, much like previous Conventions, was filled with opportunities.
 
We studied at Shaharit services, participated in workshops focusing on Communication, Membership, Programming, Finances and Fundraising and much, much more.  We listened to future initiatives and shared with our Sisterhood “sisters” common successes as well as concerns.  The many speakers, presenters and authors educated us about Community, Social and Health issues relevant to our lives today. The relationship between American Jewry and Israel was explored and discussed.
 
The Torah Fund luncheon presented us with an opportunity to listen to the four leaders of our educational institutions share their vision and goals for the future of Conservative Judaism.  What an extraordinary experience for us all.
 
The Scholar-in-Residence captured the history of Jewish Women in America;  and  the celebration of the creation of Women’s League and Torah Fund were special programs. We met our new President and Board of Directors and listened to their future goals for our Sisterhoods.
 
I attended the Membership Workshop and would like to share the Marketing strategy presented:
Who do you want to reach:  different women, different groups =different audiences
 
What a member will receive:  from National and Local levels
 
Why a member should join:  meet with people who have similar ideas/ a common direction; foster a sense of community;  participate  in Synagogue life; support women;  develop friendships and support community services , Torah Fund and Tikkun Olam.
 
How a member will be reached:  through various communication methods;  and  keep outreach on a personal level.
 
Where to take future efforts:  to new groups of women and to leadership.
 
Different communication skills, working with various portfolios and committees, together can increase and strengthen the Sisterhood membership .
 
I hope that  three years from now, you will consider attending the next Women’s League Convention. We are offered so many opportunities to study and learn and bring back new ideas and information to our Sisterhoods.  You can check
wlcj.org  for the materials from Convention 2017.
We continue to update our information from the Region. I would appreciate receiving your Sisterhood Board of Directors listing and a copy of your calendar for the year. Sharing programs will be supportive and enriching for our Sisterhoods.
 
Please contact me with any questions or concerns, any time except on Shabbat or Yom Tov, at 914-214-8940 or galtman@wlcj.org.
 
Enjoy the rest of the summer.
 
Shabbat Shalom,
Gaye
