Are the young women in your congregation looking for:
- Interaction with their peers?
- Jewish study on their level?
- Opportunities to help others?
- Friendship and camaraderie?
- Support and encouragement?
- Parenting tips?
- Leadership skills?
- Play groups, childcare, help finding the right school?
Z’havah gives younger members of Women's League sisterhoods a point of focus and connection with the larger organization. It is a mechanism to reach younger, unaffiliated women who are not yet aware of Sisterhood.
Women's League's resources and contacts are available to help design activities to attract younger women to your Sisterhood.
Each region includes Z’havah programming at its conferences and meetings and assists sisterhoods in organizing smaller scale activities directed to the interests of younger women.
The Z'havah Planner and Z'havah Newsletters are available for downloading by members of Women's League.
Mission - The mission of Z’havah is to promote and develop future leaders by assisting sisterhoods to attract and involve younger women, bringing them together and enabling them to create a variety of activities directed to their interests.
