Jewish Federation of St. Louis is thrilled to announce that, thanks to the generosity of the Staenberg Family Foundation, we are continuing our partnership with the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP) to offer women with children under 18 years old a 10-day journey through Israel. Preceding the JWRP Momentum Journey, the group will spend two days visiting Jewish Federation of St. Louis funded programs and our partnership region of Yok’neam-Meggido.
What’s unique about the Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ partnership is that the participants have the opportunity to experience Israel with a focus on learning, leading and community. Through the JWRP Israel curriculum, the group of 15 women will learn Jewish values that elevate their leadership. As a result of this experience, the women will feel even more empowered to lead in ways that bring deep meaning and purpose to the community at large.
Jewish Federation of St. Louis will be bringing the following women to Israel July 8-18, 2018: Jennifer Busch, Marianne Chervitz, Lauren Connolly, Laura Fields, Wendy Gellman, Lisa Greening, Cindy Kalachek, Shira Kraft, Blair Kweskin, Anne Molasky, Katy Motchan, Helene Platke, Jennifer Rosenthal, Karen Sher and Val Toskin.
JWRP has partners all across North America including Jewish Federations. Since 2009, the organization has sent over 13,000 participants from 126 partner organizations in 17 countries on highly subsidized trips to Israel. The inspiring Israel experience incorporates deep Jewish learning, unique on the ground experiences and a bond with other women all committed to creating and sustaining a strong vibrant Jewish community.
