Click here to register Click here to learn more & meet the panelists

INSPIRING WOMEN OF THE CONGREGATION is an annual event that features women in our congregational family with diverse talents, unique stories to tell, and insights to share. Formerly called Prominent Women of the Congregation, our previous programs have showcased women in a particular field describing their professional journeys and the role of Judaism in their lives. We have heard from women in law, in the arts, in medicine, in education, women who are Jews by choice, women from far-off lands, our original female clergy, women entrepreneurs, and women in nontraditional occupations. In recent years, our panelists have addressed issues of current concern from their professional vantage point. Recent programs have included women working for social justice, women in the political process, working in support of Israel, empowering other women, and in all phases of publishing.

SISTERHOOD encourages community and friendship among the women of Congregation Rodeph Sholom in support of women’s issues and Reform Jewish values. Through a variety of spiritual, educational, social, cultural, and philanthropic activities, women of different ages, backgrounds, and interests strengthen their ties to each other, deepen their connection to the Rodeph Sholom community and extend their influence on the world beyond.

What Matters presents: Dying Doesn’t Feel Like What I’m Doing
Jan 31 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Documentary Screening and Conversation with Director Paula Weiman-Kelman

Presented by the What Matters: Caring Conversations about End of Life programs at Congregation Rodeph Sholom & Central Synagogue

What Matters is an initiative in the Jewish community of New York that highlights the importance of advance care planning.

Paula Weiman-Kelman’s moving documentary, Dying Doesn’t Feel Like What I’m Doing, celebrates the life of Rachel Cowan—a beloved rabbi and influential mindfulness teacher, who is diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Living each day fully, she turned dying into an opportunity to experience gratitude.

Paula will join us live from Israel for a conversation with Rabbi Jacqueline Koch Ellenson about the experience of filming this intimate portrait of Cowan’s final year. Following the discussion, Rabbi Nicole Auerbach will join the conversation, delving into personal and religious perspectives on advance care. A link to watch the documentary will be made available prior to this event for all registrants.

Paula Weiman-Kelman is veteran documentary filmmaker known for moving portraits of inspiring women. Her first film Rites of Passage was a portrait of the feisty Israeli feminist icon and peace activist Alice Shalvi. Twenty years later she revisited her subject in The Re-annotated Alice.
