Many women participate in Momentum after experiencing hardships in their lives. They return home revitalized, lifted by Jewish values and supported by their sisters. This letter comes from a JWRP sister:
Thank you to the JWRP and to all those who make Momentum possible! My husband just returned from the Etz Chaim MoMENtum Trip, and he had an amazing time. I went on the December 2014 MOMentum Trip and came home completely changed and inspired.
My father passed away in 2013, and I spent the year in mourning and feeling lost. Experiencing MOMentum with women whom I hadn't known and coming home with many new sisters was awesome and motivating.
We have since created a Howard County, MD group (J-WoHoCo) and have helped to inspire other women in our community. My husband called me from his trip and said, "I'm so sorry! I didn't realize what you felt and wanted to share with our family." We will now bring it all home!
Thank you for all of your support, which enables our movement to raise the spirits of thousands of Jewish individuals, families, and communities - and infuse their lives with new meaning.
Good Shabbos, Shabbat Shalom,
