Momentum is an eight day journey in Israel, connecting us to the land, to our Personal Jewish values, and to each other.

"Here in greater Hartford we are blessed to have a Strong Jewish infrastructure.

Many communities dream to be like us! 

I am thrilled that our Jewish Federation sees the potential.

The 2020 cohort of moms has been formed, though their departure date has been changed to reflect the public health situation.


And to add excitement, a next Momentum experience is already on the drawing board! 

Would like to be amongst the first to know about the next Israel trip cohort?

For those who love the idea of being part of a cohort but don't meet MOMENTUM guidelines, or simply can't travel:

Would you like to be in a Mitzvah Mama cohort separate from the Israel trip?

The MOMentum Year-Long Journey empowers women to connect to Jewish values, engage with Israel, take action, and foster unity, without uniformity. It includes a profound, personal 8-day experience in Israel, during which women explore the Jewish homeland, take in inspiring Jewish wisdom, and join a global Jewish sisterhood. Back home, women channel their energy and passion personally, professionally, and communally, and continue their journey through educational and leadership programs.

There are FOUR primary qualifications to go on the MoMeNTUM trip with The Mitzvah Mamas:

  • This trip is designed for people who are not traditionally Sabbath Observant.

  • Our participants must have children at home under the age of 18.

  • Participants must be physically and emotionally healthy.

  • Participants must live in an easy drive (20 -30 minutes) from West Hartford, Connecticut
