Join JWA in Washington D.C. for a Gathering of Women

Civil Rights March on Washington, Reflecting Pool, August 28, 1963

Join JWA in Washington D.C. for Shabbat programming on Saturday, January 21 at Sixth & I. Begin the day with a pre-march Gathering of Strength at 8:45 a.m., then return to Sixth & I for afternoon programming. At 3:15 p.m., JWA Executive Director Judith Rosenbaum will lead A Gathering of Women, an informal, multi-generational conversation about Jewish women’s responses to the inauguration, the Women’s March, and the new administration. As we face an uncertain new era, what concerns us, what gives us hope, what fires us up? Together we will explore the sources of our vulnerability and strength as Jews and as women. Learn more.

The All-Day Pass to access Sixth & I is $5 per person, and advance registration is required. Buy your pass now, and register here for “A Gathering of Women” with Judith Rosenbaum and JWA.

Rachel Calof: A Memoir with Music

Rachel Calof

Join JWA on Thursday, February 2 for an exciting theatrical experience: a one-woman show about Rachel Calof, the real-life Jewish mail-order bride who emigrated from Russia to North Dakota in 1894 to make a new life as a homesteader. This engaging, award-winning show is based on Calof’s manuscript, handwritten in Yiddish and discovered by her children after her death. Don’t miss your chance to see the show during its only New York engagement! The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the show’s creative team and JWA Executive Director Judith Rosenbaum.

Co-sponsored by the Jewish Women’s Archive and the JCC of Manhattan.
