Welcome to Torah Fund

 

Torah Fund supports scholarships and programs in the worldwide Conservative/Masorti institutes of higher Jewish learning. The dedicated philanthropy of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, Torah Fund has raised nearly $108 million in its 80 years.

More than 35 years ago women changed the Conservative Movement to become rabbis and cantors in synagogues, and over the years, our donors have had an important role in the perpetuity of Conservative Judaism.
