Our efforts for renewed thought and conversation about NCJW-MKE’s mission continued as NCJW Board members gathered for “Soupkot” in Robyn Eiseman’s sukkah. It was incredible to be together again after a long season of zooming. Board members enjoyed various warm soups and libations. Our honoree for the 125th event, Andrea Schneider joined us for a L’Chaim!

  • Margie Margolis, Kristal Melbye, Julie Lookatch, and Ruth Wallace enjoy soup and conversation in the sukkah.
  • Andrea Schneider and Susan Angel Miller celebrate Sukkot together.
  • Sue Strait and Barb Levin enjoy seeing each other in person.

Celebrating 125 Years in Milwaukee

On October 14, 2021, our Section celebrated 125 years of “Raising our Voices and Taking Action” with a virtual event that was heartwarming and energizing; not only did we receive a tremendous outpouring of support, but we were also able to reinvigorate our membership with words of inspiration from speakers Andrea Schneider, Institute for Women’s Leadership, Marquette University, and Jody Rabhan, Chief Policy Officer for National Council of Jewish Women.
