שׂיחוֹת בֵּין אָחַיוֹת, Sichot beyn Achayot means “Conversations between Sisters.” This program is designed to foster a deeper mutual understanding between the members of WLCJ in North America, the Masorti women from Israel and Masorti Olami, and our communities around the world. It is designed to address the question, “How are we the same, and how are we different?” The theme of this year’s program is כּל יִשְׂרָאֵל עָרֵבִים זֶה בַּזֶה, Kol Yisrael Arevim Zeh Ba’Zeh, All of Israel is Responsible for One Another [BT Shevuot 39a]. The three sessions will address this question by each concentrating on one specific issue that is both relevant and timely to us all and will include presentations from speakers from both sides of the Atlantic. Each workshop will also be followed by a Q&A session in which all attendees will be encouraged to participate.
“That which is hateful to you do not do to others. All the rest is commentary. Now go and study.” [BT Shabbat 31A] This was Hillel’s famous answer to a potential convert who asked him to summarize the Torah while standing on one foot. Today we will study the hows and the whys of volunteerism and the many ways in which 21st century women are giving their time to benefit others.
