Today is March 21, 2019 -
Thank you to all who planned and also attended our 2/24 MAR Open Board Meeting at Har Zion Temple in Penn Valley. We enjoyed a lovely brunch, a MAR update from myself and the Executive Committee, and a fascinating talk on tefillin from Rabbi Wolintz-Fields, WLCJ Executive Director, followed by breakout sessions. A busy and stimulating morning was enjoyed by all!
The Mid-Atlantic Region of Women’s League of Conservative Judaism (WLCJ) welcomes all sisterhood women to take part in our commitment to each other. Our Region Mission Statement states we “serve as a connection between WLCJ and its affiliates and members to provide services to strengthen the sisterhoods/women’s groups.” So we are a link for you into the larger world of WLCJ.This further enhances the Women’s League mission, which includes supporting our affiliates in mutual efforts to understand and perpetuate Conservative/Masorti Judaism in the home, synagogue and community; and reinforce bonds with Israel and with Jews worldwide.
This year’s Women’s League and Torah Fund theme focuses on the Hebrew word for “future” (atid). It represents our wish for a distinctly Jewish future, for ourselves as individuals, for our families, and our communities.
Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with me or any of our officers with any of your suggestions or concerns. Our Region Executive Committee offers help in all areas of Sisterhood assistance. As your Region President, I am ready to share your questions, goals and accomplishments. We provide access to our International Board which advises all of us and provides solutions, ideas, goals, education and support to everyone. Quite an organization of talented, organized and supportive Jewish women to help you make your Sisterhood the best it can be!
