Mission

Reshet: Jewish Women’s Network is dedicated to strengthening multigenerational Jewish women in Southern California by empowering, educating, inspiring, and connecting them through outreach, activism, and awareness.

About Us

Launched in May of 2013, Reshet: Jewish Women’s Network (Reshet) is a new and innovative program of the National Council of Jewish Women/Los Angeles. “Reshet” means “network” in Hebrew, in line with the program’s mission to provide tools, programs, and networks to educate, empower, inspire, and connect Jewish women throughout Southern California. Reshet will continue to produce the annual Jewish Women’s Conference of Southern California along with NA’AMAT/USA Western Area, Hadassah of Southern California, and WIZO LA. Reshet also provides programs, trainings, and workshops throughout the year to ensure that women have opportunities to connect, learn, advocate, and be a part of a like-minded and proactive community throughout the year.

Current Programs

Annual Jewish Women’s Conference (JWC)

The 2015 Conference date will be announced shortly.

Presented by Reshet: Jewish Women’s Network of NCJW/LA with NA’AMAT USA/Western Area, Hadassah of Southern California, and WIZO LA. The Jewish Women’s Conference became a successful event overnight, shifting from a half day program at NCJW/LA to a full-day event for all generations of Jewish women at UCLA last year. The morning is dedicated to Educating Ourselves and Our Communities and the afternoon is devoted to Empowering Ourselves and Our Communities. JWC attracts women of all denominations and backgrounds and fills a gap in programming and support for women-specific programs in the Jewish community. Keynote speakers have included Mayim Bialik, Julie Stern, Christine Pelosi, Nina Tassler, Sandra Fluke and Dr. Cheryl Saban. JWC is co-sponsored and supported by a multitude of companies, organizations, and individuals.

Advocacy Training Project (WATP)

March-July, 2014 at NCJW/LA Council House

This program, launched in April of 2013, trains women and men to be effective advocate for issues affecting women, children, and families through six workshops. ATP is Chaired by Social Justice Advocate Sandra Fluke and hosts expert trainers to conduct workshops. Those who complete the entirety of the trainings receive a certificate of completion. Workshops include: Social Media for Advocacy, Learn to Lobby, Taking Charge of Media Relations, Presenting your Message, How to Write an Op-Ed, and Getting Appointed to a Board or Commission. 2014 co-sponsors include Planned Parenthood and the City of West Hollywood.

Life Transitions Workshops for Women (LT)

September 7, 2014 at NCJW/LA Council House

The Life Transitions program launched in April of 2013 as a result of the Jewish Women’s Conference’s panels on Intergenerational Relations and Life Transitions. There was a large response to the two conference workshops by those who attended them at the last Jewish Women’s Conference. The attendees wished to continue conversations about the challenges women face at different points in their lives. We created LT with the launch on April 28, 2013 of a half-day program titled “Conversations and Tools to Find Balance.” The upcoming Life Transitions Workshops for Women will take place on Sunday, September 7, 2014. More information coming soon.

Young Professionals Initiative

Coming up on April 7, 2014.

Every 2-3 months we host a free Happy Hour at a fun spot in Los Angeles for like-minded young professionals. Each event includes a brief professional development training and an introduction to NCJW/LA. We hope you join us!
