Jewish Mothers in Israel
The Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP) has been organizing highly subsidized trips to Israel for women, primarily those with children under the age of 18, since 2008. The trips, known as T.A.G. (Transform and Grow) Trips to Israel, are JWRP’s flagship program and “empower women to change the world through Jewish values that transform ourselves, our families and our communities,” according to its Web site.
The program is nicknamed “Birthright for Moms” and since it began, JWRP has brought thousands of women from 60 cities and 12 countries to the Jewish state. In the Twin Cities, trips have been organized by Aish Minnesota and its partnership with theMinneapolis Jewish Federation, which began in 2013.
