The Torah Fund Campaign of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism helps strengthen Conservative Judaism through its integral support of Conservative/Masorti seminaries throughout the world.

Any donation to Torah Fund is deeply appreciated. Each gift is important and is an expression of commitment to perpetuate Judaism by providing fine educational institutions to our future lay and professional leaders. Support can be given though donations of any amount, purchasing greeting cards to commemorate any occasion ($5.00 per card). Donations and pledges of $180.00 or more receive a beautiful Benefactor NATAH KAREM pin ( pictured above).

Did You Know?

TUITION COSTS: at the Jewish Theological Seminary range from $10,100-$18,920 depending on the program which the student is enrolled.

LIVING COSTS: range from $10.900 to $17,410 depending upon whether the student lives on or off campus, is married, and/or has children.

JOINT DEGREE PROGRAMS: add between $13,170 to $15.880 more tuition for students enrolled in the joint programs with Columbia and Barnard.

While it may cost an individual student $37,380 or more per year for his or her education, it costs JTS much more than the amount it receives in tuition to educate its students. Your TORAH FUND gift helps to offset the difference. Participation in the Torah Fund Campaign is our way of keeping a higher Jewish education within reach of our future Rabbis, Cantors, Educators, Scholars and Lay leaders.

Please send your donation, a check made out to Torah Fund JTS.

Remember that Torah Fund helps to ensure our future.
