Young Israel of Greater Cleveland was proud to receive a grant from the Orthodox Union to create an innovative series of three events for the women of our community, combining Torah study with opportunities for social engagement.
Our second event was held on Motzei Shabbos, 1/12/19, with over eighty women of all ages in attendance. Daniella R. Botnick delivered an insightful shiur examining midrashic traditions about the central role women played in Egypt, followed by a delicious light dinner from Chef Dave’s Catering and Bar Sushi.
After eating and shmoozing, Adina Forouzon shared some of her passion and tips for getting organized, and the evening closed with a presentation from Karen Marocco on how focused breathing and mindfulness can help face life’s stresses. After a few breathing exercises, everyone left the event both relaxed and excited for the next program, im yirtzeh Hashem to be held in March!
