Drunk Driving (1984)

Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Mind-Altering Drugs (1984)

The drunk driving problem creates an annual cost of over $5 billion in North America. The connection between drunk driving, especially among teenagers, and motor vehicle accidents has been amply substantiated.

Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, recognizing that all people are created in God’s image, and, therefore, should not bring harm to themselves or to others, urges Sisterhood members to:

  1. Support authorization for police to conduct pre-arrest breath tests of motorists suspected of being intoxicated, within the parameters of the civil rights of the individual.
  2. Promote strong legislation with strict penalties and adequate law enforcement.
  3. Contact their local and national representatives to support legislation raising the legal drinking age to 21.
  4. Encourage educational programs in the schools on the dangers of drinking and drunk driving.

#GivingTuesday - December 1st

Women’s League for Conservative Judaism is proud to announce that this year our Masorti Women’s Study Days will be held in honor of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first female Jewish Supreme Court Justice (z”l). Due to the coronavirus, this year’s Masorti Women’s Days of Study will be held virtually over Zoom, with a pertinent central theme of ‘trailblazers to inspire us at home and in the world through uncertain times. A range of subjects, chosen to reflect the ideas of our dedicated region planning committees, including a workshop by Rabbi Amy Levin to address the challenges of supplementing children’s Jewish education at home and “Creating a Family Haggadah” will be offered. Please consider donating to support this unique and exciting educational experience on #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2021!
