TORAH FUND CAMPAIGN 2019-2020

Kick-Off Brunch: Sunday, December 8, 2019
10:30am-12:30pm

Donations and Brunch Registration here

Guest Speaker: Rabbi Gary Ezra Oren, Hillel of San Diego Executive Director 
The 2019-2020 theme is Chesed - Loving Kindness

PARTICIPATING IN OUR TORAH FUND CAMPAIGN 
PROVIDES FUNDS TO SUPPORT HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT
Everyone has the opportunity to participate in preserving, promoting, and perpetuating Conservative/Masorti Judaism by giving to the Torah Fund Campaign of the Women's League for Conservative Judaism. Started in 1942, funds now go toward supporting these institutions of higher learning for our Rabbis, Cantors, and other professionals: Jewish Theological Seminary (NY), Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies (LA), Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies (Jerusalem), Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano (Buenos Aires),  and Zacharias Frankel College (Potsdam).

Those donating $180 or more as "benefactors" receive a special commemorative pin. The 5780 (2019-2020) Torah Fund pin (shown at left) depicts a heart surrounded by three circles, one larger than the next. This symbolizes the heart of kindness, which Jews enact in ever-widening realms of generosity: from family, to community, to the larger world; from North America, to Israel, to the world; or, from one congregation, to the region, to the larger world of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism.

And as it is said in Psalm 89, may we build a world of kindness.
