World Zionist Congress to meet in 2020 The Conservative Movement Needs Your Vote!!

VOTE MERCAZ! The World Zionist Congress elects the officers and decides on the policies of the World Zionist Organization (WZO). The first Zionist Congress was organized by Theodor Herzl in 1897 in Basel, Switzerland and it has been convened regularly ever since. Since the establishment of Israel, the Congress has always taken place there, and now convenes every five years. This is the ONLY political arena in Israel where Diaspora Jewry has a seat and the only place where Israeli decision makers must hear us out. We have a voice, and that voice translates into funding. The bigger that voice, the better able we are to allocate funds and influence decisions. Your vote for MERCAZ allows for our

Ileen Spoor invites you to join her in a book club discussion of "Educated" at Midbar Kode

"Educated” is a memoir of nonfiction by Tara Westover which tells the life story of one of 7 children raised by Mormon survivalists in the mountains of Idaho.

Because Tara and her six siblings worked at their father’s junkyard from a young age, none of them received proper homeschooling. She had to teach herself algebra and trigonometry and self-studied for the ACT, doing well enough to gain admission to Brigham Young University. Eventually, as a Gates' Scholar, she earned her doctorate in intellectual history from Cambridge University. "Educated" is a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that

Daf Yomi – A Page A Day.

This is an exciting week in the world of Jewish learning. This past Sunday January 5, 2020 saw the start of the 14th cycle of Daf Yomi, studying a page a day of Talmud, until its completion. The Talmud consists of dozens of tractates that total 2,711 pages. It takes seven and a half years to complete each cycle. Daf Yomi started back in 1923 as a project promoted by Rabbi Meir Shapiro the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Chochmei Lublin in Poland. Rabbi Shapiro saw it as a way of uniting the whole world around the study of a common text each day. No matter where you are in the world, everyone is studying the same page of Talmud. If you happen to find yourself in Berlin or Shang Hai, Copenhagen or Sy
