For Sisterhood Torah Fund classes, there is a minimum $54 donation to attend one or ALL Torah Fund classes for the whole year. What a wonderful opportunity to study and support the seminaries of the Conservative/Masorti movement at the same time! The Torah Fund theme for 2020-2021 is B’Yachad which means “together.” Donations of $180 and higher will receive the beautiful Torah Fund B’Yachad pin/pendant. Higher levels of giving include pins with gemstones: pearl, ruby, diamond, and emerald. For more information on these pins, email Rolly Cohen at Wearing the pin signifies the joy of Sisterhood members working together to support a new generation of Jewish leaders.
