YaleWomen Houston - Yale Chaplain Leah Cohen visits Houston

Houston YaleWomen are invited to meet with

Rabbi Leah Cohen, Executive Director and Senior Jewish Chaplain

 of the Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale University!

She’s speaking on Thursday, January 19, 2017, at 7 pm, at Houston Hillel.

                                                   (Ida & William Zinn Building, 1700 Bissonnet Houston TX 77005)

                                                       She’ll meet with YaleWomen at 6 pm, at the same location.

Her topic for us: Her Story

The power of the individual example is undeniably one of our greatest assets. As women, our stories are full of courage and self-sacrifice, of hard-earned triumphs and embarrassments, of inspiring lessons and moments of insight. Come for an evening of sharing, learning and laughing together.


Please join all our co-sponsors to hear her at 7 pm, too – you’ll be in great company!

Rabbi Cohen will give us an evening of learning and reflection, exploring tropes of past civic leadership and their lessons for today. 

She will present on "I Have A Dream" and "Im Tirtzu**": The Call to Action in the Jewish and Black Charismatic Narratives".


Refreshments (kosher) will be served!

Thanks to all the co-sponsors, there will be no charge for this event—but we very much appreciate your prompt RSVP so we can finalize arrangements and have plenty of refreshments!

       PLEASE RSVP to Lisa Stone ([email protected]) by January 16.


**“Im tirtzu” means “if you will it”; it is the first part of a statement by Theodor Herzl.

                              The full sentence is, “If you will it, it is no dream.”
