Jewessence is an eight-month journey in the heart of Jerusalem that caters to women ages 18 – 24 who grew up in observant homes and are now re-exploring their relationship with Judaism.
Jewessence encourages individual balanced growth; the education is experiential, discussion based and relevant. We are not the typical Israel program, nor are we a seminary. We are an opportunity to take time out, take account and focus on the personal strengths and unique talents of every girl who participates. Our goal is that you will leave Jewessence confident about your Jewish identity, empowered in your privilege to contribute and positive about what the future holds. We aim to facilitate each woman to heal, grow and find her place among the Jewish people.
