Nishmah, a program of the Jewish Community Center, is an approach to Jewish community and leadership, striving to strengthen and empower the spirit of women. Nishmah believes that women have unlimited wisdom and counsel to offer the Jewish community. Authority, leadership, spirituality, creativity, boldness and consciousness are all within realm of a woman’s being, and we want to foster the complexity of this potential within the girls and women of this community.
