Welcome to our website for the North by Northwest Region of WLCJ. We are pleased you are checking us out!

Our NxNW Region covers a large area stretching from the Provinces of British Columbia and Alberta in Canada, through Washington State and Oregon to Northern California.

The Region presently includes 9 individual Sisterhoods that hold their own programming during the year. We also have individual members who do not have a nearby Sisterhood community but want to stay connected with Women’s League and our Conservative Jewish community.

The Region, along with the International Women’s League, offers support through a bi-weekly newsletter, messages to our members, on-line Distance Workshops, in-person training programs, a wealth of information on the internet, and even an on-line book club.

We usually gather twice a year, in the fall and spring, when we conduct region business and provide education for our “Sisters”. Of course this also allows time to build our connections, make new friends and re-energize ourselves and our Sisterhoods! In between, we take advantage of electronic technology to allow us to see each other during planning meetings.

As members of the International Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, we support Torah Fund, an arm of WLCJ that raises funds to support the Conservative Jewish Seminaries in New York, Los Angeles, Jerusalem, Buenos Aires, and now in Potsdam, Germany. Torah Fund is essential for supporting the education of our Conservative Rabbis, Cantors and Jewish Educators. We also support Mercaz, and have opened communication pathways with our Masorti (Israeli) sisters to share information.

UPDATE ON THE WL CONVENTION 2020

Dear Friends,
 
Earlier this month there was an emergency meeting of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism’s Board of Directors. The board voted unanimously to change Convention 2020 in Schaumburg, Illinois, to a virtual convention on Sunday, July 12, 2020.
 
The WLCJ bylaws state that an election of officers must take place at a Convention. However, in light of the challenges and uncertainties facing our members and our world with the Covid-19 virus, it was felt that it may not be safe and people will not be ready to congregate at an in-person event. Hence, the virtual Convention.
 
This decision was not taken lightly. We are now preparing a schedule for the day, which will include the election and installation of WLCJ's new administration, as stated in our bylaws. We will be sending out updates on the virtual convention in the coming weeks.
 
Please also know that anyone who has registered will get a full refund. All details will be announced shortly. 
 
We hope to see you virtually on July 12, 2020, if not before.
 
Sincerely,
Margie
 
Margie Miller
