On May 19, the Jewish Women’s Theatre will present a free event via Zoom to highlight the work of Jewish nonprofit organizations, sharing their stories in a new installment of the Sunday Morning at The Braid series.
Beginning at 11 a.m., panelists Naomi Firestone Teeter, Executive Director of the Jewish Book Council in New York; David Raphael, Co-Founder and CEO of the Jewish Grandparents Network; and Michele Schipper, Executive Director of the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life will participate in a program entitled “Jewish Non-Profits: Making Mitzvot Across America.”
“At this unprecedented time when we are social distancing and often focused on all the things we are not able to do, JWT decided to create a panel that could educate us about some of the incredible things that Jewish community leaders across our country are doing,” JWT’s artistic director s Ronda Spinak said. “Now, thanks to Zoom technology, JWT can introduce viewers to three remarkable Jewish non-profits they might not know about, but definitely should.”
Next on the JWT’s virtual Sunday calendar is “Rabbinic Soul Sisters” on May 31, in which rabbis Toba August of Temple Shalom and Naomi Levy of Nashuva and Lev Eisha discuss their work and friendship that dates back 30 years to their freshman class at the Jewish Theological Seminary.
