Nishmah Winter Salon series planned for Feb. 25-26

The next Nishmah Salon series will focus on “Being Meir: Learning to Embrace Opposites,” an article from Zeek: An Online Jewish Journal of Thought and Culture. In it, Rabbi Rachel Barenblat writes about Rabbi Meir (Baal HaNes) being a Jewish role model in finding the spark of truth in opposing viewpoints, and his insight that this skill can cultivate spiritual growth. 

The Nishmah Salon Series offers an opportunity to connect and engage with other women in a meaningful discussion on topics of interest to Jewish women. Women of all ages are invited to participate.

The first two salons will be held at the Jewish Community Center’s Staenberg Family Complex Beit Midrash on Feb. 25. Diane Maier facilitates the noon gathering, and Sara Winkelman leads  the 7:30 p.m. discussion. On Feb. 26, there will a 10 a.m. session at a private home in Clayton led by Mindy Horwitz and an evening salon at 7:30 p.m. at a private home in Chesterfield, facilitated by Simone Picker. The article and location will be shared upon registration.

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