Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP)

The Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project, or JWRP, seeks to inspire women to transform themselves, transform their families, their communities, and the world. Their flagship program is Momentum, an eight-day journey through Israel. Momentum is more than a tour of Israel; it is an opportunity to deeply explore ourselves. Thousands of women from 19 different countries have already experienced this life-changing trip, paying only their own airfare, and returning home with the best gift of all—a deep, eternal connection to Israel, a profound kinship with each other, and a heart filled with Jewish values.

In July 2015, ten Beth Torah women were chosen to experience our first ever trip with JWRP and came home transformed. July 2016 saw 11 women from Beth Torah, and we hope to continue to the partnership for years to come. Stay tuned for information about 2017 opportunities, including a trip for men!

Living Jewishly – Conversion Program

Each person’s journey towards Judaism is organic and individual.  We invite you to explore Judaism and your growing relationship with it through the lenses of different Jewish denominations. This course, led by a diverse group of local rabbis,  introduces the central Jewish ideas and practices, texts and experiences that form the foundation of a Jewish life. The course is ideal for those considering conversion, or just those exploring their current Judaism on a deeper level.  If you decide to pursue conversion, this course will give you the tools to choose an informed, healthy and whole commitment to Jewish living and the Jewish people.

*This course is solely an educational endeavor. Enrolling does not guarantee conversion. An individual who chooses to pursue conversion will choose a mentoring rabbi/educator and will continue the process based on the rabbi/educator’s specific denominational requirements.
