Hear for the Health of It
The mission of Women of Adath (formerly know as Women's League for Conservative Judaism) is to strengthen and unite synagogue women's groups, their members, and individual members, support them in mutual efforts to understand and perpetuate Conservative/Masorti Judaism in the home, synagogue and community, and reinforces their bonds with Israel and with Jews worldwide. Women of Adath accepts the Jerusalem Program, which is the platform of the World Zionist Organization.
The Torah Fund campaign began in 1942 as a scholarship fund. In 1963, it merged with the Mathilde Schechter Residence Hall campaign that provided housing for undergraduate students.
Your support goes toward scholarships for the Jewish Theological Seminary, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies, Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano, and Zacharias Frankel College.

The Adath women's group had a number of name changes: the Sisters of Peace (1882), Ladies Aid Society (1890's), the Ladies Auxiliary (1900), the Women's League (1924) to Women of Adath (2018). When Mathilde Schecter organized the National Women's League in 1918, the Adath women became one of the four founding member groups. In those early years, they cooked meals, helped to furnish and beautify the synagogue, raised money, and gave staunch financial aid for numerous expenses.
Answering the challenge of relevance for today's Conservative Jewish woman, as well as spreading the geographic representation of its leadership, developing an educated Jewish laity, and appealing to younger women are all part of the challenge Women of Adath faces. Women of Adath is as dedicated as it was in 1918 to creating a vibrant American Jewish community, one which nurtures the family and community with the values of Jewish tradition.
