The Jewish Federation of Omaha (JFO) and MOMentum (formerly known as JWRP) are jointly sponsoring a women’s trip to Israel who are committed to the work of the JFO. The trip focusses on learning, leading and community.

What is MOMentum (formerly known as JWRP)? In 2008, the program was established by eight diverse women in the Washington D.C. area who saw a deep need to create an inspiring trip to Israel that will empower women to change the world through Jewish values that transform the women, their families and communities. Today, the profound, personal, 8-day experience in Israel, provides women with the opportunity to explore their Jewish homeland, take in inspiring Jewish wisdom, and join a global and local Jewish sisterhood; all through the lens of being a woman, mother, sister, spouse, friend, etc.

What's unique about Jewish Federation of Omaha's partnership is that we have the opportunity to bring women committed to the work of Jewish Federation of Omaha to experience Israel with a focus on learning, leading and community. Through the MOMentum Israel curriculum, we will learn Jewish values that elevate our leadership and through our trip experiences, we will connect this learning to the programs and projects in Israel that our dollars support. ??

Requirements to participate: Be Jewish or identify yourself as Jewish. This includes those who have converted and special cases where you are married to a Jewish person and raising Jewish kids. You must be physically and emotionally healthy, be willing to participate in pre and post programming with the Jewish Federation of Omaha, and have an interest in becoming more active in the Omaha Jewish community.

Please contact Stacy Feldman at: 402-334-6440 or with any questions.
