Nishmah’s plans first 2011 Salon

Now in its fifth season, the Nishmah Salon series continues into 2011 with its third salon from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 11 and from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 12. Both are hosted in private homes; locations given upon registration.

The January salons are titled “Jewish Identity in a Culture of Choice.” In today’s world, choices are endless. We choose everything from the exact composition of our coffee drinks to the designs of our cell phones. This salon will explore how our culture of choice impacts our Jewish identify now and into the future.

The Nishmah Salon is a living room-based discussion that affords women a unique opportunity to connect and engage with intelligent and curious women on topics of interest to us as women and Jews. Women of all ages are invited to participate. Morning salons are facilitated by licensed social worker Ilene Joseph, and evening salons are facilitated by Jewish educator Ronit Sherwin. Participation fee is $12 per salon.
