Women's League for Conservative Judaism

 

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.

NXNW Region Fall Board Meeting

Our NxNW Region's up-coming Fall Board Meeting will be held in Foster City, CA (south of San Francisco) on Oct 14-15, 2018.
The host Sisterhood is Peninsula Sinai, which will be the location of our meetings. We will start at 12 noon on Sunday, with instruction from our consultant, Renee Ravich (this is open to all Sisterhood members in our region). That evening we will hold an installation for our new region officers, Wendy Glasser as Region President, and Susan Silverstone replacing her as the new Torah Fund VP. 
On Monday Oct. 15 we will hold a business meeting to do planning for our region going forward.
