Support Nishmah

nishmah

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

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we are able to offer scholarships to women for the Women’s Retreat and provide financial support to women and girls for the Passover Journey who otherwise would not have been able to participate. This support allows us to open our doors to more Jewish women and girls.

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