This Week

on TIS Facebook
A new online campaign highlights the stories of Jewish women who identify as Sephardi, Mizrahi and women of color.
The #ShareHerStory campaign, which launched on Tuesday, is tied to Purim - the holiday during which Jews celebrate the story of Esther, the Jewish queen who saved Jews from their deaths at the hands of the Persian King Ahaseurus and his henchman Haman.
Keep up to date with us through our Facebook page. Our weekly enews, human interest stories, program announcements and more can all be found on our Facebook page.
