Elections – Voter Apathy (1988)

Despite the granting of voting rights to virtually all American citizens 18 years and over, fewer and fewer of those eligible are voting. This paradox permeates all segments of the population.

Women’s League for Conservative Judaism recommends, therefore, that:

  1. Simplified voter registration procedures be instituted in all States.
  2. Absentee Balloting be simplified to encourage greater voter participation by the disabled, elderly, and those living away from home (i.e. college students and foreign residents).
  3. Candidates be encouraged to speak to the issues, to stimulate voter interest and to inform the electorate.
  4. Sisterhood members encourage voter registration within all sectors of our society, beginning with the family.
  5. Participation in the primary process where candidates are selected should be encouraged.

#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! You can donate online here, or send a check to the WLCJ office indicating that you are donating to the “Masorti Women’s Fund.” We look forward to seeing you there!
