Program Update

Adath Israel Women’s League hopes you are all staying safe and well. This is a very unique life event we are all experiencing and it has many challenges. Social distancing is key, and this has forced us to change, modify, cancel or postpone many planned events.
We have postponed our Torah Fund Honoree Luncheon this year, and it is not yet known if it can be rescheduled for this Torah Fund Campaign year. If not, we will honor Brenda Solomon and Sharon Sharlin when we are safely able to gather together again.
Thank you all for your pledges to make a donation to the 2019 – 2020 Torah Fund Campaign. You may still make a donation to Torah Fund. Your donations to Torah Fund are greatly appreciated and will directly benefit the students at the JTS in New York, Buenos Aires, Jerusalem and Potsdam. More information about Torah Fund can be found here, please consider donating to our campaign this year.
Please make your check payable to Torah Fund, and send it to Lisa Ganzman
If you had planned to attend this year’s event honoring Brenda and Sharon, you can contact Michelle Pressman and choose one of these actions:
  • Request the return of your check for the Luncheon, or
  • Request your check for the Luncheon be used as a donation to Women’s League.
We are looking forward to being together with you again.
With warmest regards and wishes for your continued good health,
Adath Israel Women’s League
Please contact Lisa Ganzman if you have any questions

Get to know us
The national Women’s League for Conservative Judaism supports its network of 400 sisterhoods and synagogue women’s groups through innovative programming designed to educate and activate members of every age. It is the voice of the women of the Conservative movement. Its mission is to strengthen and unite synagogue women’s groups, their members, and individual members, and to support them in mutual efforts to understand and perpetuate Conservative/Masorti Judaism in the home, synagogue and community, and to reinforce their bonds with Israel and with Jews worldwide.

Our own Adath Israel Women’s League, with its dedicated and hard working board and involved members, follows this mission with innovative programming and events designed to educate and delight members of all ages. Our many fundraising efforts have allowed us to fund numerous holiday and synagogue programs and to make large yearly contributions to Adath Israel Congregation. Our organization also helps support the Jewish Theological Seminary with generous yearly contributions.

Our goal is for every woman of Adath Israel to become a Women’s League member and to get involved and attend our many wonderful events. Please help us achieve our goal!

Membership Benefits

Your dues support programs and activities throughout the year for our members and the broader Jewish community. You may join at any time during the year by sending a check to the Adath office, with “Women’s League dues” on the memo line. We welcome new women members of Adath Israel Synagogue by waiving membership dues for their first year as long as you tell us you wish to join! Please be a part of the Women’s League of Adath Israel so that we can get to know you! For questions about membership contact: Cheryl Gorski
