Inspiring The World
YOMM: THE SOCIAL NETWORK CONNECTING JEWISH WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD
The Yomm app is a global community of Jewish women invested in daily transformation and growth. On Yomm, women embark on digital journeys of discovery and growth that capture the magic and wonder of Momentum, and make meaningful new connections with Jewish women from around the globe.
The app was piloted during our fall trips in Israel to great success! Each journey features high-value, original Jewish wisdom and interactive exercises that prompt reflection, conversations, and connection with Jewish women.
Yomm is powered by our partnerships with the Mayberg Foundation, the Israeli Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, Debra and David Magerman, and Momentum Canada.

Never Lost When We Can Find Each Other
See how we brought Yomm to life as we launched the Yomm app in bringing Jewish women together.
Momentum in Israel
Momentum leads programming in Israel that inspires our Israeli community to gain a new perspective on their homeland and their Jewish heritage – with the ultimate goal of strengthening the connection between Israel and the Jewish diaspora.
During the MOMentum Trip to Israel, Israeli participants are welcomed into groups from all over the world to further strengthen this vital connection. Workshops, meetings, and holiday events bring together secular and religious Israelis and connect new immigrants, or olim, with Israeli natives for shared experiences and meaningful dialogue.
800+ Israeli women have participated in Momentum trips since 2015
750 women participated in programming in Israel in 2022
Momentum’s Public Council in Israel
Momentum’s Public Council in Israel is a distinguished panel of Israeli women from far-reaching religious, political, and professional backgrounds. Together, they represent the vibrant diversity and varied viewpoints of modern Israel, and come together in support of Momentum’s mission.
UNITING MOTHERS FROM RUSSIA AND UKRAINE
While war wreaked havoc in the region, Momentum brought their mothers together.
Working closely with dozens of our Partner Organizations on the ground in Eastern Europe, Momentum brought 200 women from Ukraine, Russia, Latvia, Estonia, and Germany to Israel for the very first time since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine.
Many of these women were living in or near high-risk combat zones, or grew up in regions where Zionist activity has been severely restricted – but that didn’t stop us. Instead, Momentum was able to transform this daunting challenge into an opportunity for Jewish unity.
The trip was emotionally charged for many of the participants. Though they felt anxious about leaving their families during such an uncertain time, they were elated to partake in once-in-a-lifetime experiences such as choosing their own Hebrew name atop Masada, and praying at the Western Wall. Each moment was full of meaning, and the final day was marked by women from all sides of the conflict shedding tears of joy.
“After being on Momentum, I feel inspired and want to share my experience and the knowledge I’ve gained with my community.”
— Elina Pashkova, Kransodar, Russia
“I always felt that my potential is not realized to its fullest, a spiritual part of it was missing. I found what was lacking all along on this trip.”
— Liah Savchuk, Dnipro, Ukraine
“Kesher and Momentum brought incredible women together. They filled my soul up, I am ready to take action. Everything seems possible now!”
— Galina Chumak, Orenburg, Russia
ELEVATING DAILY JEWISH LIFE
Momentum continues to expand its global network of engaged, empowered Jewish individuals with meaningful, inspirational thought leadership. Whether sharing meditative motivation, spiritual inspiration, or guidance through grief, Momentum’s practical advice is always steeped in timeless, timely Jewish wisdom.
“Nili’s podcast is nothing short of extraordinary! In 10 minutes, she shares poignant insights that are actionable today. I listen to a ton of podcasts and this one is top notch! I can’t wait for the next episode!”
— Marni Futterman via Apple Podcasts, United States of America

Year of Growth
A robust resource for both Momentum Partner Organizations and their participants, Year of Growth features stories from our heritage, learnings from our history, and action-based exercises that deepen Jewish learning and enhance the Momentum Yearlong Journey. Many community leaders call on Year of Growth to structure their monthly post-trip session lesson plans, while Momentum alumni use the book’s activities and conversation starters to bring learnings to life with friends and family.
Soul Full: Gateways to Jewish Prayer
Soul Full invites readers to explore Jewish prayer in a compelling and accessible format, with opportunities to learn and reflect on every page. Voices from our global community complement each prayer, connecting readers to the timeless words of our liturgy in new and personal ways. Each chapter concludes with ideas for integrating prayer into the MOMentum Yearlong Journey, and offers engaging ways for parents to introduce prayer to their children. Soul Full is given to MOMentum Yearlong Journey participants at the start of each trip, and a digital adaptation of the book is also available on the Yomm app.
“The Soul Full book was the best gift I could ever receive. I’m not someone who prays, and this book was written for me in such a thoughtful way. I plan on reading this book daily when I get home to get myself closer to prayer and to God.”
— Melanie Blumenthal, Cincinnati, OH
