  • Support of the Conservative /Masorti movement in Israel, its synagogues and women’s groups
  • Tourism
  • Aliyah
  • Religious pluralism
  • Social action

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that Women’s League for Conservative Judaism:

  • Commits to continue and strengthen its support for the Masorti Movement in Israel;
  • Commits to encourage and develop programming and information that educates its members on issues relevant to Israel today, including, but not limited to pluralism, and gender discrimination;
