It was a night of reconnecting as women from past Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project Israel trips came together at the home of Marcy Mostofsky to make mishloach manot (gifts of food between friends) for the residents of Beth Sholom Home to be delivered on Purim.
The evening also included lively discussion regarding the Torah mitzvos surrounding the laws of proper speech. One of the group’s goals this year is to learn about these laws and try to incorporate them into daily living. The purpose of The Jewish Women’s Renaissance project is to empower women to change the world. Developing a consciousness of how one speaks about people is a huge step toward this goal.
