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.
Masorti women throughout Israel participate in four Women’s League Days of Study, which are sponsored by both Women’s League and the Schechter Institute in Jerusalem. The days of study offer classes in Hebrew, Russian, English, and Spanish. If you plan on being in Israel, you are cordially invited to attend one of the Days of Study.

Women’s League has been committed to MERCAZ-USA and MERCAZ-Canada since their inception. MERCAZ is the Zionist membership organization of the Conservative movement, the voice of Conservative Jewry within the World Zionist Organization, the Jewish Agency for Israel, the American Zionist Movement, and the Jewish National Fund. It supports religious pluralism in Israel and strengthens the connection between Israel and the Diaspora.
