HerTorah: “To A Place You Do Not Know”

Hosted By: SVIVAH

From the very beginning, the Jewish people are a nation of immigrants. Avraham and Sarah leave their homeland to journey to an unknown land. While their son Isaac is born in the Land of Israel, his wife Rebecca has an immigration story of her own.

Join us as we think about these stories of uprooting and re-rooting, in the Torah texts and our own lives. Guided by teachers Rabbi Katja Vehlow, Rabbi Tarlan Rabizadeh, and Maharat Miriam Gonczarska, we will explore the particular challenges and opportunities when making a home somewhere new. Leaders from HIAS and Shoshana Akabas from New Neighbors Partnership will also join us to help us understand more about the immigrant experience and speak about how we can help immigrants today.

SVIVAH

SVIVAH’s mission is to empower, strengthen, and nourish Jewish women* through community. SVIVAH is a multigenerational, diverse, powerful collective of Jewish women* dedicated to inspiring, motivating, and celebrating life in sisterhood. In Hebrew, svivah means “to surround her'' and that is precisely our goal. We connect women to each other, to cross-generational wisdom, to Jewish learning, and to the resources we need, in an inclusive, women*-only space. We do this by curating Jewish faith experiences with women at the center, by producing wide-ranging programming, and by amplifying and partnering with organizations in line with our values. (*SVIVAH defines “Jewish woman” as anyone wishing to be included in a circle of Jewish women.)
