JWRP – A Participant in NCSY’s Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project Trip Expresses Her Thanks
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! to NCSY for extending an extraordinary opportunity to me and 17 other Toronto mothers, a chance to live and breathe Israel and Judaism with Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project.
If you are a mother reading this, it means you have chosen to pamper yourself with some time out to read, hopefully uninterrupted, for at least 10 minutes, to spend some time to re-energize yourself, even if only temporarily.
Now, try to imagine being pampered these same ways for 9 solid days. Expand this dream by placing yourself in Israel in mid-summer with 17 more mothers from Toronto and some extraordinary and inspiring speakers and tour guides. Include bright blue skies, great conversations and good Israeli coffee, walking the streets of Jerusalem toward the Kotel. Feel like a kid at camp again, where the day’s activities, meals and transportation were planned by others and all we had to do was live in the moment and enjoy being able to really hear and see what Israel is and what Israel means. Here, we got to be followers. This is only a fraction of what we experienced during the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project, thanks to the insight and generosity of NCSY.
