On Friday, June 19, hundreds of women from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Russia, Ukraine, Canada, the United States and Israel connected via several virtual meeting links to engage in learning, prayer and singing. This event is co-hosted by Women’s League, the Masorti Movement, and the Schechter Institute in Jerusalem (who facilitates the digital platform for learning). Diane Friedgut annually leads a team of women to organize these speakers and sessions each year. This is the 21st year of this learning opportunity. There are sessions in Spanish, Russian, Hebrew and English. The opening welcome statement is shared in these four languages and then attendees participate in a specially designed prayer service. Cantor Shula Resnick guided us through prayer.
