On October 22, fifteen Milwaukee women will be traveling to Israel on a Jewish Women's Renaissance Project Trip. The trip is designed for women with children under the age of eighteen who are still living at home. Our group includes six Jewish educators. Milwaukee Jewish Federation is helping to support this trip. This is the first time a group from Milwaukee has participated in JWRP.
The website describes the program as, "an eight day journey in Israel, connecting us to the land, to our Jewish values, and to each other. The Momentum experience begins with three or more Pre-Trip meetings connecting the women to each other and to Israel before the Trip. The year-long Momentum experience is designed to activate enthusiastic engagement with the beauty of Jewish life, to build a lasting connection with Israel, and a commitment to take action in one’s community towards making a better world. Women attending the Momentum trips commit to attending a follow-up session once per month."
