Project Kesher Overview
Project Kesher produces opportunities that connect women in the FSU with the richness of Jewish, democratic and feminist values. We do this by facilitating the exchange and transfer of knowledge, information and traditions. We forward our agenda of connecting women in the FSU to learn about progressive practices in community building, health, micro-enterprise and personal safety, by sponsoring the formation of an infrastructure of women's groups and networks. The women in the FSU establish their own strategic objectives, program goals, priorities and evaluation mechanisms. The women in the US provide resources and expert support on an as-needed basis. Together, in the FSU and the West, we seek satisfying relationships and experiences that significantly enhance the quality of our personal lives.
