Once again Women’s League will be producing an online, all virtual journal in conjunction with its Convention. It will be played many times during Convention and can be viewed online for months afterwards. We hope that you will help support Women’s League, honor its current and new leaders, and celebrate its upcoming Centennial with an ad in the journal. Please click here to help Women’s League continue to be the network for all Conservative Jewish women!
For the past several conventions we have been immensely proud of our social action projects designed to help local communities. With Convention 2017, we are starting a particularly fitting project that hopefully will continue long past July. Called Mathilde’s Mentionables, in honor of our founder Mathilde Schechter, we will collect new and gently used undergarments for women in need.
How can you help?
We are very blessed not to have had to make decisions like whether to buy shoes for our children or underwear for ourselves.
We have begun Mathilde’s Mentionables in cooperation with the program Support the Girls. After convention our regions and sisterhoods will bring it to their local communities. We will be collecting new and nearly new bras (used bras must be washed) of all sizes and types: nursing bras, training bras, mastectomy bras, sports bras, white bras, colored bras, etc.
You have three ways to bring them to convention:
The project will supply bras to women in need, homeless women, women in shelters, etc. In cooperation with Support the Girls, through your donations of new and nearly new bras we will be repairing one of the tears in the world.
Women’s League Convention delegates are invited to join the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs for their Shabbaton immediately preceding convention and the Cantors Concert Saturday evening. For information and to register, click here.
