Last call to RSVP for Nishmah's pre-Passover Journey event!Requesting girls and women, of every age, to join us for an inspiring evening, on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, at the Jewish Community Center's Staenberg Family Complex. Our “Journey” begins at 5:30 pm with the Passover Expo, which includes creative and hands-on learning stations and ideas to enhance your Seder experience. There will be Passover food tasting and recipe sharing, as well as other yummy, non-Passover appetizers (kosher dietary laws observed). Passover ritual items and gifts, along with jewelry and other kinds of artwork will be for sale by local boutiques and women artists.
The Journey continues with a formal program at 7:00 pm, which includes a light dinner and an inspirational evening of story, song and dance. The program, created by Nishmah women, will be led by international musical guest Peri Smilow. This is an opportunity for women of all backgrounds and knowledge to get energized for the upcoming holiday.
To help eradicate injustice in the world around us, this year's social action component at The Journey, will focus on the practice of micro lending. Guests will hear personal stories of women who are achieving freedom through micro loans, and will also have the opportunity to purchase some of their products.
Event co-chairs Jill Mirowitz Mogil and April Levison, along with Honorary Chair, Barbara Mirowitz, are excited to share this unique event with the St. Louis community. A diverse committee of 45 women has been busy planning this experience, and invites everyone to bring friends, mothers, sisters, daughters and granddaughters to St. Louis' most exciting intergenerational event.
Participant fee is $54, and includes kosher gourmet appetizers, dinner and desserts. Student and senior rates are available upon request. To register please call Lisa Vento at 442-3110. An RSVP by Friday, March 8th would be most appreciated.
