Ever wonder why some women are always happy? Learn the answer at Women’s Awareness Day (WAD), when New York Times best-selling author Marci Shimoff shares her secrets on happiness, unconditional love, and success.

Sponsored by Women’s Philanthropy, Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ, the program will take place beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 30, on the Alex Aidekman Family Jewish Community Campus, 901 Rt. 10, Whippany. The event will begin with a kosher breakfast buffet followed by the program and book-signing with Shimoff at noon. Rebecca Rosenheck of Scotch Plains and Eileen Weiss of Millburn are WAD chairs.

"We are excited to be bringing a very special Women's Awareness Day to our community. Our keynote speaker, Marci Shimoff, is known for her breakthrough transformational methods and we encourage all women of Greater MetroWest to join us as we learn the secrets of personal fulfillment and success from one of the nation’s leading experts. Come and be inspired!" said Rosenheck.

“This year’s Women’s Awareness Day program takes on a new significance with the merger of two regions. I am excited by the enormous potential of this group of women who are gathering together to laugh, learn, and address the pressing needs of our community. Please join us for a morning of empowerment,” added Weiss.

WP’s vision is to engage Jewish women through dynamic programs that enrich their lives and others in the local community, Israel, and overseas. Guided by the principles of tzedakah (righteousness), Klal Yisrael (Jewish Peoplehood), and tikkun olam (repairing the world), Women’s Philanthropy’s support of the UJA Annual Campaign enables its vision to become a reality.

A celebrated transformational leader, Shimoff is also the woman's face of the biggest self-help book phenomenon in history, Chicken Soup for the Soul. Her six bestselling titles in the series, including Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul and Chicken Soup for the Mother’s Soul, have met with stunning success. Combined, all of her books have sold more than 13 million copies worldwide in 33 languages and have been on the New York Times bestseller list for a total of 108 weeks. She is also the author of Love for No Reason and Happy for No Reason and regularly appears on national radio and television.

The registration fee is $36; a minimum gift of $180 to the 2013 UJA Campaign enables attendance at the event. A charter bus from the Wilf Jewish Community Campus in Scotch Plains will be available.

The RSVP deadline is Tuesday, April 23. Reservations can be made online by visiting www.jfedgmw.org/awareness or by calling Shay Rodney at (973) 929-3174.

Women’s Awareness Day is partially underwritten by a grant from the Maxine Fischer Memorial Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ.

Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ (Federation) stands at the center of a network of partner agencies dedicated to providing comprehensive social services and meeting the educational, vocational, recreational, and social needs of Jews locally, in Israel, and in 70 countries around the world. Responding to emergency and disaster situations around the world is another important part of the Federation mission.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
