ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 2015, At The Well’s (ATW) mission is to connect women around the world through transformative practices informed by ancient Jewish wisdom. Its programs are designed to help women learn about Jewish wellness, step into leadership, and ultimately find their space of belonging. Its flagship program, Well Circles, are independently run groups of 6-12 women who commit to meeting every month to connect, support each other, share spiritual experiences, and interpret Jewish texts as they mark the moon’s cycles.

GRANT PURPOSE

To scale and formalize a Jewish wellness program for women over 40 years of age in Los Angeles that will help them reconnect with their Jewish selves and communities, reinvigorate Jewish practice in their homes, eliminate feelings of isolation, and create new spaces of belonging for women in this demographic. ATW will partner with ChaiVillageLA, The Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills’ Sisterhood, and Temple Isaiah’s Women’s Group to reach women over 40.

At The Well is grateful for The Foundation’s generous funding in support of our mission to enhance the well-being of modern women through ancient Jewish practices. This grant will enable us to help hundreds of 40+ year-old women in Los Angeles to create Rosh Chodesh circles or “Well Circles” of their own. Well Circles are made up of 6-12 women who come together to celebrate Rosh Chodesh in transformational ways – being present in Jewish time, sharing stories of their lives, and practicing Jewish ritual for healing and wellness and using the Hebrew calendar as a source of deep connection, wholeness and belonging.
