What are the Jewels in the Crown of Women’s League? Every sisterhood in our network can be a shining jewel when it offers programs that nurture and sustain Jewish life and vitality in their local communities. Sisterhoods who met the criteria of a wide range of activities — those developed and sponsored by Women’s League as well as home-grown programs and initiatives — have been acknowledged as the glittering jewels in the Women’s League crown.
