Monday Musings: Lifecycle for the Jewish Woman (For Women)

MONDAY MUSINGS: Jewish Lifecycle for the Jewish Woman
WOMEN ONLY

with guest speaker Ora Weinbach
Mondays @ 7pm | MJE West
The Jewish Lifecycle for The Jewish Woman:
Moments of life transition provide us with opportunities to invite Judaism into our lives. All cultures and traditions celebrate these moments and we will explore how the traditional and modern Jewish rituals harness the natural highs and lows of life, guiding the practitioners to Jewish understandings of the human experience. Learning about these rituals will bring us into conversation with an ancient, yet modern question:How can some of these apparently male-centric rituals be understood by and connect to the Modern Jewish Woman?
