At this special program, we will explore the intersections of the national women's movements and the local dynamics of women in synagogues within the greater Washington Jewish community. How did Jewish women--inspired by the women’s movement--bring change to their communities through sisterhoods, Hadassah, and other women’s groups? And how have Jewish women contributed to the women’s movement and taken a stand for women’s rights? Bring a friend and an artifact that tells your story!
