5778 Torah Fund Pin (2017-2018)
Mah tovu, which means “How good!”, is a phrase that originates in the Torah, in Numbers 24:5. Quoted in our prayer book, it forms the basis of the opening prayer that is sung when we enter the synagogue.
The full phrase is Mah tovu ohalecha Yaakov, mishk’notecha Yisrael, “How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwellings, O Israel!” It is a spontaneous exclamation of joy and appreciation, said when gazing at the nation of Israel, dwelling in peace and mutual respect. As we celebrate the beginning of the 100th year of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism and the end of the 75th year of the Torah Fund Campaign, we count our many blessings as individuals within the community of Israel. We are blessed in our synagogues with depth of learning, prayer, and acts of kindness that bind us together; with communal leaders who are thoughtful and learned; with children and grandchildren who make us smile; and with the love of family and friends – especially our Women’s League sisters – who are such a strong support to us.
How good are all these blessings in our lives!
The pin, featuring the number 100 in raised letters and encased in a silver frame, is a treasured keepsake of the Women’s League centennial celebration to wear with pride!
