In February 2008, eight Jewish women came together from all walks of life and traveled to Utah for a four day retreat.Â The group consisted of married, single, older, younger, observant and non-observant women, and all agreed that the values of the world were spiraling out of control.Â Â The result is the deterioration of family, community and the very fabric of the Jewish people.
They had one mission: to create a movement thatÂ brings values back to the world.
And, just as Jewish women were the leadership of the feminist movement in the 1970â€™s that created real social change, so too Jewish women must be the leaders in a new social movement based on values. Thus The Jewish Women's Renaissance Project (JWRP) was born.
