Yes thats right……..this Rosh Chodesh is like no other. We have two amazing women that will be leading our ladies.
First, is Allison Josephs who is the founder and director of JewInTheCity.com – which breaks down stereotypes about religious Jews and offers a humorous, meaningful look into Orthodox Judaism through the power of new media. She has been involved in the field of Jewish Outreach for fifteen years, teaching and lecturing, working at Partners in Torah, Sinai Retreats, and NCSY, and is the spiritual mentor to actress Mayim Bialik (who remembers the show Blossom?). She was named one of NJOP’s Top Ten Jewish Influencers in 2012. Allison has been interviewed on television and radio, including programs such as “What Not To Wear” and NPR; her articles have appeared in numerous publications including the newly released anthology Like Water on a Rock, The Washington Times, The Jewish Press, and World Jewish Digest. She has also written articles and directed and produced videos for Aish.com and lectures around the country and on WebYeshiva. She received her Bachelor in Arts from Columbia University in Philosophy and lives with her husband and four children minutes from the George Washington Bridge. Allision will be giving us an amazing talk at 7:30pm SHARP.
And if that won’t blow your mind, then we will have Challah Making and the meaning behind it with Rebbetzin Nalini Ibragimov (or shall I say Mrs. Groovin’??). Anyone that has been over for shabbat knows that Nalini’s Challah is like no other…….just melts in your mouth and is always perfect and delicious. Seriously, DO NOT REGRET MISSING THIS!!
We look forward to seeing all you lovely ladies on Tue May 22, 2012 at the Hersh Residence (1737 E.23st)
