Our Network Needs You to Become a Community

For the past several years, my personal mission has been to connect Women’s League members to one another as well as to our organization.
So what are we doing to really connect with you?

As an organization, Women’s League has been expanding its communications, finding new and interesting ways to link us together as a community of Conservative Jewish women. This uniting and bonding can only happen, however, when we each do our part, when we each under-stand the importance of our collective voice.

As I travel around the 13 regions, meeting with sisterhoods, large and small, in big cities and in small towns, my message is clear. I promise that Women’s League will provide outstanding educational materials and a supportive community of like-minded women. But we need you to make the effort to be part of the network. While we continually evaluate what we offer, without member participation it is for naught. You are the essential ingredient in this endeavor to connect.

The big, bold question is, “What can you be doing to connect?” The answer for every member – not just those in leadership positions – is simple. Go to www. wlcj.org for these and more:

  • Love to read? Join our online book club, Women’s League Reads. Need a selection for another book club? Our Orpah’s book list has lots of suggestions with background, questions and answers. Read the newest edition of BookMarks, where you will find influential and game changing – or just plain popular – books from each of Women’s League’s 10 decades.
  • Have you loaded our app on your smart phone or iPad? Connect to our website, find a sister-hood or candlelighting times wherever you might find yourself across the continent.
  • Looking for like-minded women? Join one of our special interest listserves… for Judaica shop chairs, sisterhood presidents, mothers of olim. Be sure to join WLCJNet, a sisterhood without walls that includes women from across North America and Israel.
  • And specifically for your sisterhood: looking for a new program idea? Click on programs. The Sisterhood Planner and the Jewels in the Crown booklet offer some remarkable tried and true suggestions.

We are striving to build an inclusive community of women. All we ask is that you reciprocate. We can connect, we can link to one another, but we need you.

Take a moment now to log onto www.wlcj.org and update your profile. Check off the box that says you want to receive periodic email updates from WLCJ. While we promise not to overwhelm your inbox, we also promise that what you find will whet your appetite for more.

We can’t do all that we do without some help. So I’d like to take this opportunity to ask for your support as we continue the outstanding programming that enriches the lives of so many. We hope you’ll return the enclosed envelope with a generous donation.

Thank you for all that you do at home, in your synagogue, in your community and for your Women’s League sisters around the world.
