SVIVAH’s HerTorah: High Holiday Conversations

Hosted By: SVIVAH

Watch one of the many conversations in this series here:

You can watch more sessions from this series on SVIVAH’s YouTube page.

We didn’t even know how to begin to start thinking about starting a New Year. So we asked some pretty incredible thinkers, leaders, scholars how they were approaching 5782.

Take a listen to these fantastic educators — they’re raw, they’re real, they’re honest, they’re inspiring. What they say will stick with you. We asked each of them the same questions — not one of them answered the same way and yet each of them got to the very heart of what this New Year feels like.

With gratitude to these thoughtful souls who are lifting up our Elul by letting us take a glimpse into theirs.

And — more importantly — we hope you’ll enjoy their teaching and want to learn from them during the year ahead. With each of these interviews, you’ll find contact information so that you can find them. But for now, let them uplift your Elul — watch or just listen to their thoughtful approaches to 5782 — it will make your year.

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.)
