A variety of passersby helped JWA create a community art project honoring the women who make our lives brighter. We share the spirit of this event with you in our latest video and wish you a warm, bright, and very happy Hanukkah.

Making Trouble trailer screenshot Do you have plans for New Years Eve? Too cold to venture out for First Night activities? Leftover Hanukkah gelt burning a hole in your pocket?

JWA's film Making Trouble brings their stories to life and gets at the heart of what it means to be Jewish, female, and funny.
