Thank you to everyone who attended this amazing event.

GUEST SPEAKER

 

Felice Cohen
Professional organizer known as "The Jewish Marie Kondo"

 

Felice is the author of five books, a professional organizer, motivational speaker, and Holocaust educator. You might have seen Felice in that infamous YouTube video of her 90-square-foot Manhattan studio. She moved into that tiny space for one reason: the low rent allowed her to quit her job and finish writing her first book, What Papa Told Me, a memoir about her grandfather, a Holocaust survivor. When the YouTube video went viral, people around the world asked her for advice on organizing and decluttering, and praised her philosophy about "living large" in a small space. That was the motivation for her second book, 90 Lessons for Living Large in 90 Square Feet (...or more), which tells how living tiny made her life larger, but it also offers lessons on how to live the life you want in any size space.

Mitzvah Project

 

Feminine hygiene products are not covered by food stamps and put an added financial strain on families who are already struggling to put food on the table. You can help women and girls in our community meet their basic needs by making a mitzvah donation at our Women of Impact event. 

 

Each year, we feature a program we feel passionate about in our community. Once again this year, we are collecting feminine hygiene products for our JFCS food pantries in conjunction with our Women’s Philanthropy Giving Circle.
