Women’s League: Rabbi Elana Zelony, Congregation Beth Torah, Richardson, TX
Masorti Olami: Rabbi Diana Villa, Schechter Institute and Rabbinical School, Jerusalem
Topic: Conservative/Masorti Conversion
Two rabbis will explore issues of Conservative/Masorti conversions: is the experience different for rabbis in Israel vs. North America? How are conversions from our movement accepted in Israel? And what are the ramifications for their children/grandchildren with respect to marriage and Aliyah.
Program funded by: generous grant from KKL/MERCAZ
This program is designed to foster a deeper mutual understanding between the members of WLCJ in North America and the Masorti Olami women of Israel. It is designed to address the question, “How are we the same, and how are we different?
Each of the 3 workshops will address this question by concentrating on one specific issue that is both relevant and timely to us all, and will include presentations from 2 speakers, one from each side of the Atlantic. During the October and November workshops will each be followed by a Q&A session in which all attendees will be encouraged to participate. The third workshop in December will conclude with breakout rooms in which participants will have an opportunity to join the conversation.

Registration for each session will be separate. This registration is for the October 17th session only. Registration for the other two programs in November and December will have separate registration links.
