Sisterhood is an integral arm of Israel Center of Conservative Judaism, comprised of women who epitomize the voice and strength of the modern Jewish woman. Sisterhood provides a venue through which the creativity, talent, and leadership capabilities of our women can realize their full potential.

Through our programs, which benefit the synagogue and serve the community at large, bonds of camaraderie are formed which instill long-lasting friendships. Those relationships enable our members to grow and flourish in a warm Jewish atmosphere of belonging and caring.

Sisterhood provides outreach services for individuals, families, and the congregation as a whole, as well as assistance to the community, as needed.

Working in conjunction with various committees of the synagogue, such as Fundraising, Programming, Social Action, and Religious Affairs, Sisterhood assists in maximizing the success of all projects and events.

First year Sisterhood membership is free to all new female synagogue members

Torah Fund

What is Torah Fund?

Torah Fund is an arm of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism.

Your contribution to Torah Fund helps by strengthening and perpetuating Conservative Judaism throughout the world. It supports our rabbis, cantors, educators, synagogue administrators, social workers, scholars, researchers, etc.

The Torah Fund Campaign for 5777


The 2017 Torah Fund pin/pendant was designed by Eytan Brandes. The wheat branch featured in the pin/pendant signifies the sustenance we wish for all our family and friends, and the olive branch represents our prayers for peace.

P’RI YADEHAHP’ri yadehah, which means “the fruit of her hands,” is a phrase from Eishet Chayil in the Book of Proverbs (31:31).To commemorate the 100th year of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism and the 75th year of the Torah Fund Campaign, we celebrate women’s achievements through creativity—the fruit of her hands—in the family, workplace, home, synagogue, and community.

Help us to continue to strengthen Conservative/Masorti Judaism throughout the world, and enhance the Jewish community by recognizing and appreciating our diverse families and by making your personal contribution. Pins are available now.

If you wish to make a $180 donation, contact Idan (718-631-1959) for the Torah Fund pin.
