Women Supporting Women

Two of our affiliates, Perth Rosh Chodesh Women’s Circle, and Beit Chabad Ohel Devorah RCWC, recently held beautiful and meaningful Cheshvan events, supporting each other as women during this time of crisis.

Perth Rosh Chodesh Women’s Circle attracted more than 75 people as Shira Himelstein shared her experiences living in Israel from a young age, emphasising her love of the Holy Land. Linda Friedland also spoke of her family that had unfortunately been directly affected by the war. She raised over $5000 on the night for the family of a captive baby and for equipment for IDF soldiers. Uniting as one through Tehillim and song, the women felt empowered and strengthened and expressed that they were given a perspective shift – despite the darkness, there is some light that we can hold onto. Beautiful Neshek packages were also distributed to continue to spread the light. A Kislev event is currently being planned together with the RCWC.

BCOD (Ohel Devorah) RCWC also held a beautiful and moving event. Maya Rahav wowed the audience with her story of her incredible journey to Yiddishkeit and her experiences in the Israeli army. Rebbetzin Rivkah Groner shared an uplifting message to dispel the darkness, and the women joined in solidarity with Tzedakah, saying the entire Tehillim and enjoying tea and refreshments. It was very comforting to be together with other women who had the same feelings of concern for Eretz Yisroel. Saying the Tehillim made everyone feel more positive since they were actively doing something to help our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land. The women were all eager to attend another event in a month’s time to Please G-d celebrate and rejoice in the victory that the month of Kislev will surely bring with Hashem’s help.

SPECIAL OFFERS: We have extended our special offers until 3nd November for any other groups of women who would like to subscribe as an affiliate group and do a Kislev event. Contact us via our website today.
