We know our Torah Fund supporters care deeply about Jewish education and the future of Conservative / Masorti Judaism. Let’s make this a banner year for our Creating New Spaces campaign, and help build a strong future for our Jewish people. For Giving Tuesday, please contribute to this campaign and help advance our two important projects.

Creating New Spaces provides nurturing physical and spiritual spaces for our students and next-generation Jewish leaders through two significant initiatives:
The Women’s League Study Space in the new JTS Undergraduate Residence Hall, part of the state-of-the-art campus renovation designed by world-renowned architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien. This environment-friendly area hosts new technology, an essential element in higher education, and it provides access for people with disabilities, well-equipped kitchen facilities, and sections for students to study and socialize.
The Women’s League Institute on Gender Bias and Harassment, a ground-breaking special course of training at the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies. A safe space for discussion of these topics, this forum helps students identify instances of bias and harassment and enables them to build skills to deal with these challenges — whether in the workplace, synagogue, school, summer camp, or wherever their rabbinic career takes them.
Our goal is to raise $200,000 to be equally split between the two schools; thanks to the generosity of our wonderful donors, we’ve already raised $111,000. Please help Torah Fund further these two important projects by giving today. We’re grateful for your donation, thank you!
