Workshop #1

Creating Ideas: Exploring Innovations

 As women we are both creators and facilitators, nurturing our own creations while also supporting the endeavors of others. Participants will reflect upon their personal innovations, and confront the challenge posed by creations that evolve to take on a life all their own. This challenge is emphasized in a Talmudic tale of Moses traveling through time to study in the classroom of Rabbi Akiva.
