To empower and inspire Latin American Jewish mothers so that they can reconnect with their Jewish heritage and values. Jem Miami Inspires others one step at a time.
Jem Miami has become one of the biggest movements of Latin American Jewish mothers in South Florida.
Jewish experience of Miami in Partnership with JWRP has been taking annual trips to Israel since 2016 and has inspired over 60 women. It has been growing since then.
Initially, Jem Miami selected a group of Latin jewish women for an 8-day free trip to Israel, just paying for their own airfare. After that, we designed a 12-month follow-up program outlined by JWRP.
The follow-up program includes personal growth, Israel history and engagement, lectures and Torah Classes. Additionally, Jem has built volunteer opportunities to strengthen the building of better communities in the North Miami Area. Some Volunteer work includes: Bikur cholim, JCS food bank, among others. Moreover, Jem Miami has done major social events with the women and their families, such as Challah bakes, Shabbatons and Holidays parties (Chanukah, Purim, etc).
