'No Woman Left Behind' Campaign Aims to Bring Jewish Mothers From Disadvantaged Countries to Israel

NEW YORK,  The Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP), which brings Jewish mothers on life-changing “Momentum” Israel trips, launched a new campaign to help disadvantaged women from around the world experience the trips as well.



The JWRP’s “No Woman Left Behind” campaign was created to bring Jewish mothers in countries deemed “at-risk” – where anti-Semitism is resurging or Jewish heritage is declining. Among the countries JWRP is targeting are France, Poland, Hungary and Romania. JWRP supporters Debra and David Magerman are also providing a matching dollar-for-dollar grant, doubling each dollar donated.



The campaign, which launched last week, has already raised more than $98,000 toward a $250,000 goal, which will enable the organization to bring more than 80 additional women to Israel. Since 2009, the JWRP, in partnership with 150 partner organizations in 26 countries, has brought more than 8,000 women to Israel, and, starting in 2014, has partnered with Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs. The organization aims to bring another 3,500 Jewish mothers to Israel, including those from at-risk communities, in 2017.


“Momentum trips provide Jewish mothers with soul-stirring Israel experiences, enabling them to return home and transform their families and the wider Jewish community,” said Lori Palatnik, the JWRP’s founding director. “While we have already taken thousands of women to Israel, we want to leave no woman behind. This campaign will enable us to embrace so many more of our sisters around the world.”



One Momentum trip participant from Moscow, Laura Troyanovky, said her journey to Israel with JWRP brought her much closer to her Jewish roots. “After this trip, we started keeping Shabbat with the kids, started baking challah and learning more about our heritage.”
