Support Nishmah

nishmah

Nishmah is dependent upon the generosity of our donors and program participants for our funding. While we operate under the umbrella of the J, our model requires us to be a self-sustaining program, which means that we raise the dollars needed to cover our own costs.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, Nishmah fosters a community of brilliant, responsible, creative women, girls and boys through meaningful programming. Your dollars help to cover costs for programs and services that have tremendous impact. Together, we:

  • Empower young girls and boys using creative lessons in Jewish values
  • Hone teen girls’ skills in social justice, advocacy, leadership and mentorship
  • Provide support, connection and education to women diagnosed with cancer
  • Facilitate meaningful Mikvah (ritual bath) immersions
  • Enable open, stimulating conversations in safe environments
  • Foster connections between women of all ages and backgrounds
  • Offer spiritual experiences in alternative settings
  • Distribute scholarship dollars to ensure program accessibility

For more information about how you can support Nishmah, please contact Shira Kraft, Director of Nishmah, 314.442.3111.
