About us

Jewish women have always had a unique role to play in fostering community. As individuals, we each have something to contribute to our community. Through a deeper understanding of our Jewish women's spirituality we are able to meaningfully contribute to our Jewish community while bringing warmth and inspiration to our own daily lives.

At the Jewish Women's Circle of Grand Rapids, we are dedicated to sharing and exploring our Jewishness while fostering friendship and community growth. All Jewish women are welcome regardless of background, knowledge, or level of observance.

Mezuzahs & Mimosas
It was an amazing night of unity! The night kicked off with a mimosa bar and some delectable refreshments. We played an interactive get-to-know-you game and Nechamy shared some inspiring insights about the spiritual security of the mezuzah. The evening's highlight was undoubtedly the exquisite and unique glass fused mezuzah covers we created together. It was truly a night of creativity, unity, and bonding with the Jewish women of Grand Rapids.
Pre-passover paint night
The JWC ladies came together and indulged in delicious wines, cheese, salad and a mouth-watering mocha cake. Nechamy shared some inspiring words about Passover and the resilience of Jewish women throughout history. We all had fun unlocking our inner artist as we painted and decorated together these beautiful tambourines. (Miriam, Moses sister, led the Jewish women in song and dance with tambourines after witnessing the splitting of the Red Sea.) A special thank you to Michele and Joel Young for hosting us in their lovely home!
Salads & Succulents
It was a wonderful evening at the Jewish Women's Circle celebrating Tu B'Shvat! We had meaningful insights from Nechamy, delightful succulent arrangements led by Ellen Fishman, a delicious array of salads prepared by a team of amazing ladies, and incredible hosts, Keren & Avi Migdal, who opened up their beautiful home and created such a welcoming atmosphere. It was an evening full of friendship, food, and fun!
Pre-Chanukah Candle Making Workshop
We joined together for a fun-filled Pre-Chanukah event. We each created a unique scented candle and enjoyed delicious Chanukah refreshments. Exciting raffles were drawn throughout the evening and what would a Chanukah event be without a good game of dreidel with a twist. Nechamy shared with us some inspirational Torah thoughts on the power of spreading light to others and the symbolism of the Chanukah candles.
