What is the most important thing a mother can pass on to her daughter?

Why Not Theatre is making a show about Montreal's Jewish women, and is looking for daughters, between the ages of 22 and 32, and their mothers (or mothers and their daughters) who are interested in creating and performing in it.
They are hoping to talk to people across the city about their experiences of being a woman and being Jewish, about their family traditions and how those feature in their lives, and about their most outrageous family stories. These stories will then be woven into a performance starring the mothers and daughters themselves.
No performance experience required. We're looking for real people and real stories!

If you're interested in finding out more about the project, and how to participate, please contact Poppy Keeling:
The project will be created in association with Complicite and A Bit Off the Top

Minyan takes place every Monday and Wednesday morning at 7:30 am, followed by breakfast. Monday is a traditional davening and Torah reading. Wednesday is a Mindfulness Meditation minyan.
If you are saying Kaddish, observing a yahrzeit, or marking a special occasion, please join us.  It is a wonderful way to start the week or the day in a warm and inspiring ambiance among friends.
