Whether you are in Melbourne, Australia or in other parts of Australia or even around the world we are seeking to expand and grow and welcome the involvement of interested women.  Whether it is for ‘an hour a week or an hour a month’ no help is too small for us to appreciate.

Our Goals

  • Create opportunities for Jewish women to come together to celebrate the new month of the Hebrew calendar
  • Provide a meaningful and relevant themed message for each month specifically to empower women and connect them to their Judaism.
  • Encourage lasting and meaningful friendships, both new and old, amongst the women in your very own community.
  • Give women from diverse backgrounds a voice and to create lasting legacies for future generations.
  • Empower women to develop a unique sense of self by recording and appreciating their experiences.
  • Offer meaningful, nurturing and interactive events based on the Jewish tradition and heritage

Why Join

by Elissa Blaser

There are many reasons to join the RCWC and many benefits follow. However, there is one main reason: Join with us so you may understand how precious you are, how valuable you are and how important your life is. “A price above rubies…”- one cannot set a price high enough to explain the gifts a Jewish woman brings to those around her. Why is this so. Each month, on Rosh Chodesh, the day designated to remind us of monthly cycles and fieminine energy, you will learn more and more of the special, almost preferential relationship women have with G-d, about their gifted nature and about the tremendous powers they possess.

A woman builds the world around her

Together we will learn how
