Nishmah Spring Salon discusses ‘Reflections on ourselves as Jews’

The Nishmah Salon series offers and opportunity to connect and engage with other women in meaningful discussion on topics of interest to us as Jewish women.  Each salon is held in a different location and/or time with different facilitators.  Women of all ages are invited to participate.

The first two spring salons will be held on Tuesday April 23 at the Jewish Community Center’s Staenberg Family Complex Beit Midrash, 2 Millstone Campus Drive in Creve Coeur. The noon salon will be facilitated by Diane Maier and that evening, a 7:30 p.m. salon will be facilitated by Sara Winkelman. At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, April 24 Aura Kavadlo will facilitate a salon in a private University City home. That evening at 7:30 p.m. the final spring salon will take place will be at 7:30 p.m. at a Creve Coeur private home.  Addresses will be given upon registration.


Each salon will discuss the article “Pausing at the Doorpost; New Meaning for the Mezuzah.” from Lilith magazine.  This article reflects on coming to terms with our Jewish self and our relationship to our families, community and to God. The article also looks at ritual items such as the mezuzah and how it can be a tool on one’s spiritual journey.

Suggested donation for each salon is $15.  Register online at or contact Director Sara Winkelman at 314-442-3268 or [email protected].
