Women work to engage, lead and inspire


PROVIDENCE – On Thursday, May 11, the Women's Alliance welcomed Meg Waite Clayton, bestselling author of “The Postmistress of Paris,” for a women's exclusive evening at the Alliance’s Dwares Jewish Community Center. This was the group’s first in-person event since reemerging from COVID.

Women's Alliance Chair Janet Goldman kicked off the event with a warm welcome to nearly 50 guests, and Hilary Levey Friedman, Brown University professor, sociologist and afterschool expert, served as the interviewer and emcee. Waite Clayton was candid on how she creates her characters and adds personal touches to her writing. A Lions of Judah cocktail party took place ahead of the author conversation and a just-desserts Meet & Greet followed.

The Women's Alliance looks forward to a range of programs and events in the coming months. To be a part of the Women's Alliance or to learn more about its vision, please contact Chief Relations Officer Jennifer Zwirn: jzwirn@jewishallianceri.org.
