What an amazing trip to Israel! Once again, women from Tidewater connected to their land, roots and Jewish values on the eightday Momentum Trip through the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project.

Our community is proud to be part of this cutting edge movement that is literally changing the world. Highlights included meeting and traveling with 200 women from across the U.S. and Israel, emotional experiences at the Kotel, making challah for Shabbos and learning the mitzvahs and symbolism surrounding it, and awesome and inspiring speakers. As always, we took time to visit Pardes Katz, Tidewater’s sister city in Israel, where we got to see the differences that are being made in people’s lives through the Matnas (community center) that United Jewish Federation of Tidewater dollars help support.

For the third straight year, JWRP received funding from United Jewish Federation of Tidewater

“I believe that this journey strengthened my belief in God and that Jewish women can be empowered to make a difference in our community.”

“Along with 200 women, re “Jew”venation is the term that comes to my mind with this experience of a lifetime. What a blessing!”
—Tracy Weinstein, Virginia Beach

“To me, the trip was like coming home. Shabbat at the Kotel was the most special event. I could feel the energy and the spirituality of everyone present like it was a physical thing. It was truly awesome.”
—Robin Herbol, Virginia Beach
