Torah Fund Classes

Torah Fund Classes

The Sisterhood of NSS Beth El has a long history of supporting the Conservative/Masorti Movement’s Torah Fund through the sponsorship of an impressive array of annual classes, led by our clergy and talented synagogue directors.

We encourage you to join any of these classes.  What a wonderful opportunity to study and, at the same time, support the students of our Movement’s five seminaries across the globe!  Click here for a list of all of this year’s Torah Fund (and other NSSBE Continuing Education) courses.  Click here for our Sisterhood Torah Fund Book Club schedule.

No donation is too large or too small; however, a suggested minimum annual donation of $54 per person covers attendance at any or all Torah Fund classes (including Book Club), all of which are open to everyone (women and men, Beth El members and non-members).

Donors at the Benefactor level ($180) and above will receive the beautiful 5781 Torah Fund pin, designed by Eytan Brandes, which may also be worn as an eye-catching pendant.  The pin depicts the theme of “b’yachad” (together).

  • by logging on here. No credit card transaction fee will be added.
  • by mailing your check (payable to TORAH FUND) to Mary Ellen Bowers, 1092 Princeton, Highland Park, IL  60035.
  • by calling Sherrill Moss-Solomon at 212-678-8977 and leaving a message that you’d like to make a donation.  Sherrill will return all calls and will process each donation while you’re on the line.  Please leave ONLY your name and phone number in your message.

Our Sisterhood is extremely proud of the funds we’ve raised over the years, which have helped Torah Fund to realize close to $1B since its inception.  Our Sisterhood hopes to contribute another $10,000 to this year’s campaign and, with your kindness and generosity, we can achieve our goal!

Please note that a donation to Torah Fund is separate from membership in Sisterhood.  For more information about our classes and how you can contribute, please contact Mary Ellen Bowers at 847-910-1080 or

Sisterhood thanks you in advance for your support of Torah Fund!
