With the support of EAJC, the Mothers-Daughters workshop was successfully held by the Jewish women’s organization Project Kesher within the framework of the project “L’dor Vador. The power of generations”.
Mothers and daughters from five Russian cities – Samara, Saratov, Kaluga, Ufa, and Ulyanovsk – gathered together to learn more about their roots and delve into the study of Jewish spiritual values.
The workshop was developed and conducted by the professional Kesher Project team: Inna Motornaya, Natalya Babayan, and Alexandra Kalinina.
The participants enthusiastically discussed Jewish texts, tried on women’s biblical images, and talked a lot about the good deeds that can be done by families within the community and beyond.
As a result of this dynamic process, the workshop participants suggested a modern upbringing model based on Jewish values. Both mothers and daughters learned a lot and strengthened their relationship in a joint creative process.
The last day of the workshop was devoted to planning future activities in different cities within the framework of the project “L’dor Vador. The power of generations”.
The Mothers-Daughters workshop in Samara is one of five such meetings scheduled within the project and aimed both at preserving the link between generations and Jewish spiritual traditions in the family.
