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.
