Do you know a Jewish mother who is also a healthcare worker?

Or maybe it is YOU?


The MOMentum Year-Long Journey for Healthcare Heroes will bring a group of outstanding Jewish mothers to Israel from July 6-12, 2021.


This unique 7-day and 6-night experience will focus on healing souls, connecting with peers, and drawing inspiration from Jewish wisdom and modern-day Israel. It will feature Momentum’s signature educational programming, led by world-class speakers and Israeli thought leaders, as well as exclusive programming developed especially with healthcare workers in mind.

This is a highly time-sensitive opportunity. Registration closes on June 1st, 2021

Your health and safety are our top priorities. This trip will be adjusted to meet COVID-19 regulations.


Mifgashim (encounters) with Israeli mothers in the healthcare field will be at the heart of our experience. A select group of Israeli women will join our group, sharing their stories and strengthening the connection between Israel and the Diaspora. Upon their return from Israel, participants will continue their year-long journey at home, taking part in a post-trip learning program.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is MOMentum Year-Long Journey for Healthcare Heroes intended for?

Healthcare heroes, nominated by their communities/family members or themselves. Healthcare heroes means: doctors, nurses, paramedics, EMTs (emergency management
technicians), dentists, physical therapists, mental health specialists, physicians’ and dentists’ assistants, and social workers in healthcare.

All participants must have children ages 24 years and under. This trip is designed for Healthcare Hero moms who are not highly engaged in the Jewish community or Jewish ritual observance.

What can I expect from participating in the MOMentum Year-Long Journey for Healthcare heroes?

The MOMentum Year-Long Journey is designed for women who are less engaged in Jewish communal life and ritual observance. You can expect to experience a transformative process of Jewish learning and growth, with pre and post-trip online learning sessions and a trip to Israel taking place from July 6-12, 2021, together with a select group of First Responder Mothers from the U.S and Jewish communities from around the globe.

Beyond the trip, what are the pre and post trip commitments?

Every woman who participates in the trip must commit to joining educational sessions, designed especially for participants of the trip:

June 2021: 2 pre-trip online sessions

July 6-12: Israel trip

August – October 2021: 3 online learning sessions with a Momentum educator (monthly)

November 2021 – January 2022: Momentum Circles online learning (8 weekly sessions)

The sessions will be held virtually to accommodate everyone in their current location.


Who can nominate me? Can I nominate myself?

Anyone who recognizes you as an outstanding professional and person can nominate you for the trip! Nominations can come from both Jewish and non-Jewish organizations, (i.e. community centers, volunteer organizations, healthcare organizations, etc).

Your family members and friends can nominate you, too. Lastly, we ascribe to the words of Rabbi Hillel, “If I am not for myself, who will be for me?” That means you can nominate yourself!

Is this opportunity open for Momentum alumni?

Yes! To take part in the MOMentum Year-Long Journey for Healthcare heroes, nominated participants can be both first-timers or Momentum alumni. Alumni can expect a different program in Israel than the trip they’ve attended in the past as well as a different post-trip program. The spirit of Momentum, however, remains the same!
