Miriam’s cup is the tradition of putting a vessel of water representing Miriam’s well on the Passover table. Miriam’s well is said to have been a magical source of healing and sustaining water that followed the Israelites for 40 years because of the merit of Miriam. Miriam’s Cup is a symbol of all that sustains us through our own journeys.

Nishmah remembers the life and work of Lynne Palan, z”l. Lynne’s passionate dedication touched every facet of our organization. Like Miriam’s waters, Lynne’s virtue will have lasting impact on our community for years to come. May her memory be for a blessing.

To pledge a gift, payable by December 31, or for more information about how you can support Nishmah, please contact Shira Kraft, Director of Nishmah, 314.442.3111.
