Welcome to Seaboard Region
Women’s League for Conservative Judaism
 

Our History and Mission:   

Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, founded in 1918 by Mathilde Schechter, is an active arm of the worldwide Conservative/ Masorti movement.  As an international organization, Women’s League for Conservative Judaism provides services to 600 affiliated women’s groups in synagogues across North America.  This network links 100,000 women in 13 regions with groups in Israel, Great Britain and South America.

Seaboard Region was organized in 1945 by our Founding President Florence Rogers. It currently has a membership of over 5100 women, with 31 Sisterhoods in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. 

The mission of the region is to serve as a connection between Women’s League and its affiliates and members, and to provide services to strengthen the Sisterhoods/women’s groups.   Seaboard helps our member groups succeed by providing training, seminars, general trouble shooting and problem solving as well as networking opportunities for Sisterhood leaders.  Our programs seek to instill the religious ideals of Judaism into the lives and homes of our members, emphasizing Jewish ethical teachings as they apply to individual and group life.  We encourage involvement and participation in contemporary issues on the local, national and international scene.


UPDATE ON 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
International President
