Jewish Federation of St. Louis, with the support of the Staenberg Family Foundation, has again partnered with the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP) to offer women with children under 18 years old a nine-day journey through Israel.

Preceding the JWRP Momentum Journey, the group will spend two days visiting the Jewish Federation of St. Louis funded programs in Tel Aviv, as well as St. Louis’ partnership region of Yok’neam-Meggido. 

Participants will have the opportunity to experience Israel with a focus onlearning, leading and community. Through the JWRP Israel curriculum, the group of 16 women will learn Jewish values that elevate their leadership and help the women feel more empowered to lead in ways that bring deep meaning and purpose to the community at large.   

Since 2008, JWRP has sent more than 10,000 participants from 142 partner organizations in 26 countries n highly subsidized trips to Israel.
