Torah Fund Campaign
Every year, Women of TEC announces the Torah Fund campaign which raises funds to ensure our legacy to future generations of Conservative Jews by providing: Rabbis, Cantors, Educators, Administrators, Social Workers, Scholars, Professional and Lay Leaders, Researchers and more. Torah Fund supports higher Jewish learning at:
- JTS – The Jewish Theological Seminary (New York)

- Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano (Buenos Aires)
- Zacharias Frankel Seminary (Potsdam, Germany)
The 2021-2022 (5782) theme was B’YACHAD which means “Together” in Hebrew. As depicted in an available pin, each of us is one small nugget of gold, but B’Yachad. Together, we reflect and refract the light inside us and help each other shine.
The 5782 (2021-2022) Torah Fund theme signified the joy of sisterhood members working together year-round through their volunteer efforts at synagogues across the United States and Canada to make important contributions to Jewish communities throughout the world. We educate and train the people who guide, teach, console and uplift our people, one soul at a time during these challenging times.We make this happen together… Join us.
Please make a difference in preserving Conservative judaism by supporting Torah Fund, the official philanthropy of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. Torah Fund has raised over $95 Million since its inception and the work to keep educational needs funded is still at the forefront.
A donation of $180 or or more will provide you with this year’s beautiful Torah Fund B’YACHAD pin. Of course, we greatly appreciate donations of any amount. Any amount helps to preserve our future.
You can donate ONLINE by credit card by going directly to the donation page on the International Torah Fund web page at JTS:
(In the box that asks for your sisterhood, type in TEMPLE ETZ CHAIM and THOUSAND OAKS for the city.)
Let Esther or Phyllis know when and how much you donated so we can verify for proper credit.
If you donate by check, make the check payable to TORAH FUND. If the donation to the Torah Fund is being made in memory of a loved one, please add a note with the check so you can be recognized in ETZETERA. All donations can be sent to the Temple with attention to Torah Fund on the envelope.
Contact us with any questions at 818-585-6890 (Esther) or 805-499-6370 (Phyllis)
