“THE FUTURE IS NOW AT JTS”
The new Torah Fund theme for 2016-2017 is P’ri yadehah, which means the fruit of her hands, and is a phrase from the beloved Eishet Chayil prayer, taken from the Book of Proverbs (31:31) We celebrate women’s achievements and creativity with the 2017 Torah Fund pin/pendant, designed by Eytan Brandes.
Torah Fund Pin for 5777
To commemorate the 100th year of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism and the 75th year of the Torah Fund Campaign, we celebrate women’s achievements through creativity—the fruit of her hands—in the family, workplace, home, synagogue, and community. Women dedicate their lives as volunteers, as leaders in the Jewish and secular worlds, as scholars, scientists, artists, business leaders, and more.
The wheat branch featured in the 2017 pin/pendant signifies the sustenance we wish for all our family and friends, and the olive branch represents our prayers for peace.
May this year of Torah Fund be a beautiful blessing for you and your family!
