NARWLCJ Conference to be held in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD – The annual conference for the North Atlantic Region of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism will be held at Temple Beth El, 979 Dickinson St. on April  21.
This is a wonderful opportunity to meet sisterhood women from other synagogues in our area, and to network with those who share our interests and commitments to Conservative Judaism, our synagogues, Jewis education, family, world affairs, Israel and public policy and advocacy.
The morning program will be a Women’s Health Care Forum entitled “Physical, Emotional and Financial  Wellness.” The afternoon workshops will help members improve their skills, learn new techniques and enhance sisterhood planning.
There will be a moving presentation by a third generation survivor who will share her experience of meeting this summer with grandchildren of Nazi perpetrators.
Registration forms which contain all the details of the conference can be obtained from designated sisterhood officers/synagogue offices.
Barbara Safer from Jacksonville, Fla. will be the Conference Consultant and keynote speaker. She is a  trainer and conference consultant for Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. She is chair of Distance  Workshops, a successful method of providing on-­‐going  learning for sisterhood members. She will be facilitating  the Sisterhood  Presidents Workshop and the NAR Board  Orientation.
Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, the largest  organization of synagogue women in the world, with more  than 60,000 members in the United States, Canada and Israel is dedicated to the perpetuation of traditional  Judaism in the home, synagogue and community, and is associated with the Jewish Theological Seminary (New  York), Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies (Los Angeles), and Schechter Institute, (Jerusalem), and Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano (Buenos  Aires).
Women across the continent will be meeting in the 13  regions of Women’s League during the Spring of 2013.
