An essential element of the mission of Women’s League is to reinforce bonds with Israel and Jews worldwide by nurturing a real sense of ahavat Zion (love of Israel) among its members. To that end, the Israel Affairs department promotes a Six Point Program for Israel:
- Zionist philosophy
- Support of the Conservative /Masorti Movement in Israel, its synagogues and women’s groups
- Religious pluralism
- Social action
Women's League members are asked to sign onto the Jerusalem Program that expresses our unifying and comprehensive support of the Jewish homeland.
Masorti Women International
is a vital outgrowth of Women's League's commitment to enhance connections with Conservative/Masorti communities and congregations in Israel. Through Masorti Women International, personal relationships develop creating a true sense of a shared mission. In conjunction with the Schechter Institute
in Jerusalem, Masorti Women International sponsors four Days of Study across Israel with classes taught in Hebrew, Russian, English, and Spanish. If you would like to participate in the next Day of Study, please click here
