The Sisterhood is a women’s group organized as an integral part of Congregation Beth-El. Each year, the Sisterhood chooses an elite female member of our community to honour and celebrate as part of the annual Torah Fund luncheon. The proceeds of the Torah Fund Luncheon are donated to the Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS or JTSA). Located in New York, the JTS is one of the leading academic and spiritual centers of Conservative Judaism.
The Torah Fund honoree for 2014 is Katie Wong, a member of Congregation Beth El. The Torah Fund Luncheon honouring Katie was held on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. Katie spoke of her journey through the conversion process to Judaism and was warmly applauded for her exciting and inspirational message for all the members of Congregation Beth El.
Please feel free to send your recommendation for a member, or members of our community deserving special recognition by the Torah Fund for future years. We will be most pleased to hear from you!
