Conversation 4: An Opportunity for all participants to enter Breakout Rooms to engage in conversations between North American and Israeli sisters. 
Program funded by: A generous grant from KKL/MERCAZ

This program is designed to foster a deeper mutual understanding between the members of WLCJ in North America and the Masorti Olami women of Israel. It is designed to address the question, “How are we the same, and how are we different?

This final workshop will address this question by concentrating on one specific issue that is both relevant and timely to us all, and will include presentations from speakers, one from each side of the Atlantic.

This program will conclude with breakout rooms in which participants will have an opportunity to join the conversation between North American and Israeli sisters.
