We started with a dream: Welcome a few women, offer some toys and snacks, learn a meaningful sicha on the parsha.
The idea caught on quickly. It didn’t take long before dozens of women made Wednesday at the Circle the bedrock of their week. Additional programs were added but most profoundly, perhaps, was the tangible effect women experienced in their marriages, parenting and homes. And what starts in the home, radiates outwards to the entire community.
At this point, a decade in, it’s our Circle that makes Crown Heights go round.
In order for our Circle to maintain momentum, we need YOU. Your contribution means we can continue offering high-quality weekly classes for women and monthly mother-daughter learning sessions for free. Your gift means annual shabbatons and additional events at below-cost price. Your donation means that we can help more families with financial support when they need it.
Your partnership means that we can keep our Circle rolling and Crown Heights going round.
So, let’s do it Crown Heights. 60k in 36 hours. Together. www.matchathon.com/wc.
