Even though it’s not yet Thanksgivukkah, Purim is in the air at Women’s League!
A new development project, SIMCHAT MEGILLAT ESTHER, will produce a beautiful Megillat Esther to be shared among the regions and sisterhoods as an incentive to study and address some of the story’s intriguing issues as well to revisit an ancient tale through contemporary eyes. The empowerment of women, enriching family ties and reinforcing communal commitment — three themes which run throughout the book of Esther — are central to the Women’s League mission. Add your support to this project to enhance the outstanding programming, educational and personal growth materials that Women’s League offers members worldwide to help fulfill that mission.
