The Torah Fund is a campaign to ensure our legacy to future generations of Conservative Jews by providing: Rabbis, Cantors, Educators and Administrators, for Day Schools and Synagogue Schools, Synagogue Administrators, Social Workers, Scholars, Lay Leaders, and Researchers. Support the campaign as we celebrate its 77th anniversary. Your Torah Fund contribution strengthens and perpetuates Conservative/Masorti Judaism throughout the world.
Atid means “future” in Hebrew. As Women’s League for Conservative Judaism enters its second century, Torah Fund begins its 77th year, and the State of Israel enters its 71st year. We look forward with joy to our future together with you, our sisterhood members and supporters of Torah Fund.
When the classical rabbinic texts speak of the future using the word atid, it usually appears in the phrase “le’atid lavo,” which means “in the future to come.” By this, they mean either the day when the Messiah will come, or olam haba, the afterlife. Israelis, referring to this life, are known to say with optimism, “Yesh atid,” which means “there is a future!”
How do you envision your future? Your personal future, the future of your family, the future of your community, of the United States, Canada, and Israel? When you dream of a bright future, is it in the next world or this one? The seminaries of the Conservative/Masorti movement, which we support through Torah Fund, are doing the great work that helps us navigate our future together, as one people. Our sisterhoods provide the social and educational networks – the extended family – that help us go forward into our future, as Jewish women, with confidence.
The 5779 Torah Fund pin envelopes the Hebrew word for “future” (atid) with a stylized Magen David. It represents our wish for a distinctly Jewish future, for ourselves as individuals, for our families, and our communities.
