Description

Join the Beth Yeshrun's Sisterhood as we kick off a three part series highlighting women in support of women.

2018-2019 Sisterhood Board Installed by Rabbi Sarah Fort

Dr. Melissa Weininger's Topic for the evening -

I would like to say something : Jewish Women Writing Each Other

The history of Jewish literature has largely been controlled and written by men, and women writers have often been excluded or marginalized. We will explore how women have found their voices through the work of other women.

NEW! Athleta will be joining us! Don't miss out on their pop up shop, 20% promotion, coupons, and a raffle giving away two bras!
