Learning

Women’s League is committed to promoting a Jewishly educated laity and provides sisterhoods with several innovative programs each year:

  • Divrei Hokhmah: Words of Wisdom are concise units of study with which to open a meeting or program. To date there are modules on Proverbs, the Ten Commandments, Kol Ishah, Heart & Soul, and the Environment.
  • International Days of Study afford women the opportunity to study the same text at the same time with hundreds of other women across the continent. The Five Megillot have been the focus of the first series: Ruth (2004), Esther (2005), Kohelet (2006), Song of Songs (2007), Lamentations (2008), and Psalms (2009)
  • Women’s League Shabbat celebrates Women’s League and Sisterhood with study and programmatic materials.
