Jobs

The Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP), a non­profit organization based in Rockville, Maryland, was established in 2008 to empower and inspire women to transform themselves, their families, their communities, and the world. The JWRP’s flagship program is Momentum, an eight‐day, highly subsidized, action-­‐packed journey through Israel—an opportunity for women who share a common vision of self‐growth and personal development to deeply explore themselves. More than 10,000 women from 26 different countries have already experienced this life‐changing trip, 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.

At the request of many participants, their husbands, and partnering organizations, the JWRP created Momentum opportunities for men, helping to lift the family together; and hundreds of men have already experienced the spirit‐building power of Momentum.

The JWRP works in partnership with a wide spectrum of community organizations and has established itself among major Jewish organizations and leaders, built a stable base of funding, and continues to grow. Thanks to a partnership with the Israeli government, the JWRP will expand its reach to even more organizations in more countries.

An extremely dedicated, hands-on, entrepreneurial group of professionals and lay leaders have built the organization from scratch to where it is today.
