Nishmah – Programs for Women

Through a number of diverse and inspirational programs, Nishmah brings together Jewish women from different denominations who otherwise may have never met. Together, these women learn from each other, connect and form bonds through faith and friendship. Nishmah creates the foundation for these Jewish connections that form outside the walls of a synagogue environment.

For more information, visit the full Nishmah Programs for Women page.

Ilene Joseph Salon Series

The Salon Series connects and engages women in meaningful, facilitated discussion on topics of interest to us as Jewish women. Each salon is held at a different home with a different facilitator.

Start Your Own Salon

Overwhelmed by book groups but still looking to connect with other Jewish women on a regular basis? We can help you get started, by providing a facilitator or training you to facilitate. Find your friends and find a home, and we will help with the rest.
