Donate to Torah Fund

What is TORAH FUND?
The funds donated by YOU to Torah Fund create scholarships & programs for our future Rabbis, Cantors and Jewish educators in the Conservative/Masorti movement.  There are 5 institutes of higher learning in New York, Los Angeles, Israel, Argentina & Germany who are able to provide scholarships & programs to our future leaders because of you. 

Profiled below is one such beneficiary; our own Jennifer Rolnick.

Many of you are familiar with the Marcia Sheena Torah Fund Award which recognizes a CBS Woman of Valor & highlights Brith Shalom’s connection with the Torah Fund fundraising campaign.  As we approach Shavuot & our receiving of Torah, we can all appreciate those who enrich our own Jewish education.

If you wish to be a financial supporter, please make payable to TORAH FUND & mail your donation to:
CBS Women Torah Fund
4610 Bellaire Blvd
Bellaire, TX 77401
Or make your donation online at:  https://inspired.jtsa.edu/torahfund

There is a field on this page for the donor to enter our synagogue’s name & city.  Torah Fund pins are available at the Benefactor Level ($180); we hope we count on your support at any amount that is comfortable for you.

Thank you,
Lili Liebgold-Stern, Torah Fund chairperson(281.468.8459)
Lyn Rosenberg-Johnson, President, CBS Women
Laurie Silverblatt, 2022 Woman of Valor

Jennifer Rolnick
Shalom,
I am Jennifer Rolnick and I grew up at Congregation Brith Shalom.  My journey to become a cantor started with my own childhood cantor, David Propis who inspired and encouraged me to sing.  I still remember many of the songs we learned in the Brith Shalom Youth Chorale and am still friends with many of the other choir members.

I studied for 5 years at the Jewish Theological Seminary, including one year in Israel where I had the privilege to sing with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra.  In 2017, I completed my studies and received a diploma of Hazzan and Master of Arts in Sacred Music.  

Today, I am a cantor in Baltimore, MD and I recently completed a Master of Arts degree in Jewish Education from Towson University.  I will soon be serving a congregation in the Boston area. 

Thank you for your support of Women’s League and the Jewish Theological Seminary.  You helped me to achieve my dream!
