Women of Valor Poster Series Now On Display!

In the Social Hall from March 1 through May 30!
As part of the Adult Education Committee's theme, Celebrating Jewish Women, Beth El will exhibit a poster series created by the Jewish Women's Archive titled 'Women of Valor.' This series recognizes and highlights the lives and accomplishments of trailblazing Jewish women, such as Emma Lazarus, Emma Goldman, Bela Abzug, and many others, each of whom had the courage and conviction to overcome the social, cultural and religious barriers she faced in creating a more just and equitable world. These posters portray the images, words and life stories of Jewish American women who challenged conventional expectations and helped change our world. Please stop by the Social Hall between March 1 and May 31 to learn more about these amazing Jewish women.
