VOICES OF WOMEN
As women, we have powerful and profound outlooks and ideas about life. Our programs are designed to awaken and enhance the expression of these ideas through interactive performance, retreats and workshops designed to delight, educate and entertain. We seek to provide a renewed understanding of ourselves and other females through the perspective of the greatest women to ever live as powerful and complex females, the women of the Old Testament. There will be dancing, singing, reading and weeping as we share their struggles and triumphs, as well as their sorrow and joy. There could even be fascinating awakenings within your mind and soul as you participate with us.
Our programming is perfect for Sisterhoods, Chavurah, Hadassah, and any other gathering of women. You can always be assured of a high level of professionalism, attention to detail, cooperative spirit, and involvement in the process of planning your event. Please feel free to browse the website for more detailed information. Looking forward to joining you in sharing these experiences as they unfold!
