Happy Passover from Voices & Visions!

On Passover millions of Jewish families become what Rabbi Rachel Cowan calls "voyagers on an ancient pathway." 

As the Haggadah says:
"In every generation each of us must see ourselves as if we personally came out of Egypt."

Voices & Visions wishes us all an inspiring and liberating journey.

"I am blessed to be a voyager on an ancient pathway." 
- Rabbi Rachel Cowan
Voices & Visions in Afghanistan  
 A Jewish military chaplain  deployed  in Afghanistan to  lead the Passover Seder  requested Voices & Visions  posters for the chapel,  observing that "military  chapels in a deployed  environment are more  spartan than they are warm  and welcoming."

 Here is the chapel today, all  spiffed up for Passover.

Voices & Visions Banners at JFN Conference 
Did you attend the Jewish Funders Network Conference this April?

If so, you probably saw large Voices & Visions banners that served as both guideposts and inspiration for Conference attendees in San Diego.

Unusual Places for Proudly Jewish

     In the Playroom
"I wasn't yet sure of the ultimate location of the Proudly Jewish posters, so I quickly hung the posters in our playroom area. I didn't know what 
would happen with them, honestly.

It turns out that, with them in view so much of the time, so casually and unforced, the kids started asking about them. It has created a space for meaningful discussion.

Sometimes, when we just do something without overthinking it, the outcomes are magical."  -Goldie Cohen

                                In the Coatroom
 "At our synagogue the area where people  hang their coats is one of much        conversation. I hung up posters with their  accompanying explanations without any  fanfare and just watched to see what  would happen.

 People were surprised by the new posters  hanging on the wall. They spent time  reading them and discussing them with  other people who were also getting their  coats. It was a good way to subtly  increase Jewish content, particularly
because people could take their new Jewish thoughts with them as they walked out the door immediately afterwards."     -David Schwartz, Chicago IL
