CFMJ raises funds for the Conservative Movement (Masorti) in Israel. Masorti has grown to over 60 kehillot across Israel, promoting tolerance and pluralism and an open, yet traditional approach to religious practice and study. Masorti provides many programmes including preschool and kindergarten classes, TALI schools, the NOAM Youth Movement, MAROM Young Adult Leadership Programme, the Masorti Kotel, and the Bar/Bat Mitzvah Programme for Special Needs Children. Masorti donations are fully tax deductible.
