The Walking With series has been created by the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in partnership with the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, the Rabbinical Assembly, the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, and the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs. It has been made possible by the generous support of the Held Foundation, and is dedicated to the memory of Louise and Harold Held.

Our tradition teaches that Talmud Torah has no prescribed measure, that it yields benefit both immediately and in the time to come. It is our earnest hope that the Walking With project will awaken a passion for learning and provide a stimulating and positive educational experience in the short term. We pray, also, that in the longer term it will help to strengthen our people's connection to God and to a life of spirit and mitzvot.
