About Core

Core imagines a world in which Jewish women are so connected with Hashem, the Torah, and with each other that the warmth of Torah radiates through them to others, creating communities that are so warm and inspiring that everyone born into them wants to stay, and everyone else wants to join.

Just a few generations ago women got together in groups for community issues like school and shul improvement, bikur cholim and chessed, as well as when they watched their children play.  They gathered while their children played. They fundraised for global issues like supporting Jews in the Holy Land, Russia and Europe. Women have a vision and a sense of responsibility for others that fosters strong connections amongst themselves, and with the Jewish people as a whole.

Core was started to reweave the social fabric of the Jewish people by concentrating on the women. Our goal is to create meaningful friendships, inspired marriages, passionate parenting, outstanding teachers and time for introspection, inspiration and re-dedication to the essential aspects of Jewish life.
Our goal is to inject into observant Jewish people a sense of relevance and an excited commitment to Torah and mitzvos.
Women need kindness, inspiration, understanding, support and exceptional role models more than ever.

Core is committed to reweave that fabric.

Core was founded to build up and support Jewish women since connection to Hashem, the Torah and the Jewish people is fundamentally passed through them. As mothers and grandmothers, as teachers and Rebbetzins, and as community leaders and members we are privileged and tasked with carrying and transmitting our holy Mesorah. 

Wisdom dictates that new pathways to connection and sustenance be forged to help strengthen our communities. Core provides an array of channels, a network of support, and a cohort of trained Torah mentors to support, inspire, and connect to today’s women, so that they, their homes and their communities can truly flourish, and those women, in turn, can create spaces for others to flourish.
