GARDEN STATE REGION OF WLCJ HOLDS REGION CONFERENCE
The annual conference for the Garden State Region of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism will be held on May 19, 2013 at Congregation Agudath Israel in Caldwell, New Jersey. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet sisterhood women from other synagogues in our area, members of our region, and to network with those who share our interests and commitments to Conservative Judaism, our synagogues, Jewish education, family, world affairs, Israel, and public policy and advocacy. There will be a region installation with outgoing president Janet Geldzahler and incoming Garden State Region President, Ilene Rothman.
Conference Chair Teresa Samtur promises that this year’s conference will have something for everyone. Sessions will focus on issues for Women of Conservative Judaism. Workshops on Keruv/Membership, Israel Advocacy and Pubic Policy are just a few of the enriching and exciting plans for the day. These programs will help sisterhood members improve their skills, learn new techniques and enhance sisterhood planning. Sisterhood presidents will have a chance to consult with each other as well as with the Women’s League Consultant, Renee Glazier, member of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism Board as Director of the Ba’Olam Blog.
This year the Garden State Region will also be promoting a Mitzvah Project at Spring Conference. The Region is requesting participants bring kosher food items which will be donated to the Bobrow Family Kosher Food Pantry, located at Oheb Shalom Congregation. This is where those in need can come and take food items to help stave off hunger. For many reasons, there are those among us who are still suffering the effects of the recession, Super Storm Sandy, a lay-off or even an unusual economic situation. A tax donation from will be available at the conference.
