WNSCI Leadership



Upcoming EventS

WNSCI Shabbat

Friday, May 17th at Kabbalat Shabbat Services at NSCI

Featuring guest speaker Mike Hollander


We encourage everyone to join us for Kabbalat Shabbat services led by members of Women of NSCI and Shir Chadash. We will also welcome guest speaker Mike Hollander, Israel guide and educator. In this week of Israel's national holy days of Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day) and Yom Ha'atzmaut (Israel Independence Day), Mike will speak about how Israelis have been marking sacred time since October 7th. If you are interested in being a part of it, email by May 3rd.


Tikkun Olam is an important part of the work of WNSCI. At each of our events, we choose an organization that can benefit from our support. For this Shabbat we will be donating funds to No Shame on You, a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating the stigma associated with mental health conditions so the people who need the help will seek it, family members and friends will know how to provide proper support, and so lives can be saved. Please bring checks payable to No Shame on You and put WNSCI on the memo line.
