Nishei Ora includes personal and profound art and writing from more than a dozen Jewish women in Florida, Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, New Jersey, New York, Arizona, Los Angeles, South Africa and Israel. 

Some of us are baalei teshuva — women who grew up secular and returned to Torah Judaism. Some are gerim — Jews by choice. Some are Hassidic, Litvish, Modern Orthodox, Chabad, or new to uncovering the beauty of Judaism.

We span the vast spectrum of observance, and together we have created a beautiful, one-of-a-kind publication with meaningful, thought-provoking and inspiring content. The 11 editions of Nishei Ora we have created so far are filled with stories of women working to create within themselves a home for Hashem, bringing holiness into the world.

Nishei Ora is distributed complimentary throughout Florida, including Miami, Aventura and Hollywood, and in the Jewish communities of Atlanta and Norfolk, Virginia.

As a nonprofit, all donations go directly to production, printing and distribution of this beautiful publication.
