The Braid: Sweet Tea and the Southern Jew

Wednesday, January 19 | 7:30 p.m.

Stories come alive at the crossroads of cultures, as Jews of the American South embrace hospitality, challenge bigotry, and struggle to resist the temptations of pulled pork!
 
Temple Isaiah is so excited to host this and two other shows this year from The Braid... IN-PERSON! Formerly Jewish Women's Theater, The Braid has become the go-to Jewish story company. As Rabbi Zoe says, “The Braid is amazing. Everyone who walks away from one of their shows is so inspired and so excited and feels so good. They are really an incredible treasure!”

Rosh Hodesh Celebration

Sunday, January 23 | 5:00 p.m.

Isaiah Women is pleased to partner with NCJW|LA on a very important event to raise awareness, encourage important conversations, and raise money to support Women’s Reproductive Rights.

Please read the below information and consider participating by HOSTING or attending an event either virtually or in person.  All proceeds benefit WRAAP, a non-partisan, non-profit organization helping women gain access to safe, legal abortion services and
emergency contraceptives. They work with pre-qualified, reputable reproductive health clinics across the U.S. on behalf of disadvantaged women in need.

Join NCJW|LA, partner organizations, and our wider community to stand up against the growing policy-based assault on abortion access across the nation. On Sunday, January 23, 2022, at 5 pm we will come together for Courageous Conversations on Abortion and have open, honest, and meaningful conversations on self-managed abortion medication: a path to uplift rather than restrict reproductive freedom.

ROEAT49: Courageous Conversations on Abortion offers individuals the choice to host intimate, courageous conversations on abortion by hosting in-person or virtual dinners with friends and family.
To become a dinner host, you will need to complete an online registration form by Friday, January 7, 2022. Early registration is highly encouraged. There are in-person and virtual hosting options.

The women of this country are on the verge of losing reproductive rights.
We hope many Isaiah Women support this event in a meaningful way!
Please reach out to Amy Phillips at amyphillips94@sbcglobal.net or Lori Globerman at lorigok@verizon.net with any questions.


Looming Gathering

Sunday, January 30 | 2:00 p.m.

Come join IW for a fun & relaxing afternoon of Baby Beanie Loom Knitting No Experience Necessary! We will teach you!
 
Our women’s group will have you “in stitches“ while we chat, and create these adorable hats for Temple Isaiah’s newest members! Our beanies will also be donated to Hats Off for Cancer, a group whose mission is to comfort children while in treatment.

Light refreshments will be served in this lovely shaded outdoor space!
 
All supplies will be provided at this free event. We only REQUEST that you bring a “crafty” attitude and a willingness to have some fun… “Sew What” if you have never had a “pattern” of doing anything like this before!

InterGenerational Writing & Conversation

Thursday, February 3 | 5:00 p.m.

Sometimes the best way to dive deep into a conversation is to start with a bit of writing!
Join Julie Grass and Erica Jamieson for a no-experience needed writing class.  Participants from Chai Village and Isaiah Women will have a chance to write on a variety of prompts, read work aloud, give feedback, and ask questions throughout the class.  In this way, our intergenerational village of writers will help each of us dig a little deeper into the stories we are inspired to tell.

This is not a learn to write class but rather a series of inspirational writing sessions that we hope will spur conversation and insight. Feedback will be positive and aimed to inspire more writing. The class will culminate in a group-determined
publication party – either a reading or a virtual publication to be shared with family and friends.
 
We will meet for eight consecutive Zoom classes on Thursdays at 5 pm starting February 3. Each class will run for 75 minutes.
Snacks & cocktails are encouraged!

Attendance for I.W. will be capped at ten.
