Shaked Chapter - Rehovot
The chapter was founded in 1985 and has over 90 members
Every month, sometimes even more often, there is a social gathering of the group –a stimulating lecture or marking the Jewish holidays and various events.The meetings include light refreshments, and we prepare interesting content, sing-alongs and more. In addition, we occasionally plan a trip, a show at a discounted price, etc.
The members participate in various activities of the Forum for the Advancement of the Status of Women or other entities in the city.
I bring to the attention of the members every new course opened by the Forum for the Advancement of Women or the Welfare Department, and encourage them to participate. Many of our members have participated in courses such as: women's leadership, mediation, gender budgeting etc.
I also procure workshops at a discounted price for the members, such as for personal empowerment and reinforcing tips, healthy lifestyles, etc. All the meetings and friendships created at the workshops contribute to a stronger sense of belonging and personal acquaintance.
