Torah Fund

In 5778, the Women's League for Conservative Judaism celebrates 100 years of growing and strengthening the Conservative Movement.
Torah Fund was established 75 years ago, and now proudly supports scholarships and housing for rabbinical and cantorial students at the five Conservative Seminaries. Building upon the first 75 years of Torah Fund's achievements, TBA Sisterhood offers the annual Torah Fund pledge pin. This year's theme is Mah Tovu, "how good" from the Book of Numbers. Mah tovu ohalecha "How goodly are your tents," a spontaneous exclamation of joy and appreciation, sung as we enter the synagogue.
Receive the commemorative Ma Tovu Torah Fund pin for 5778 as OUR GIFT TO YOU in recognition of your generous pledge of support.
