Woman of Valor/ Eishes Chayil Award

A Taste of Broadway

From Hollywood to Holywood

with Judy Winegard

JUDY WINEGARD was classically trained in the performing arts at the Neighborhood Playhouse in Manhattan, New York, as well as, at Ithaca College where she was awarded her BFA in Drama. On tour with a Broadway-bound production of Jekyll and Hyde when she began her return to Yiddishkeit, Judy left her blossoming career in show business for a more promising career as a Jewish wife and mother. Since then she has been a master acting teacher and performance coach for Kol Neshama, a Jewish Girls Conservatory for the Arts. She had one of the starring roles, Miss Agatha Grimshaw, in the first ever, for women only, movie musical. Her second movie musical, The Heart That Sings, , premiered at the Holocaust Museum in Los Angeles and The Jewish Museum in New York this past March. Judy also co-wrote and starred in her one-woman show, The Wedding Presence, which she performed in NY for over 3,000 women. She feels so blessed that Hash-m has given her opportunities to share her G‑d-given talent with women-only audiences. Judy is a major talent in every sense of the word, her star quality equally illuminating the comedic, dramatic, and vocal aspects of her stage performances.

*Sara Kaplan has been teaching for over thirty years, helping women rediscover their heritage and guiding many of her students as they build their own homes. She gives classes on an array of topics, from the Bible and Psalms to Chassidic perspectives on marriage and parenting. Kaplan is humorous and approachable, and known for quickly developing a rapport with her listeners. She is the grateful mother of nine children, who, she claims, have been her major teachers, and have, thank G‑d, blessed her with many grandchildren. Sara Kaplan and her late husband Rabbi Leible Kaplan, A"h, were sent by the Lubavitcher Rebbe to Tzfat in Eretz Yisroel thirty seven years ago.

**Chana Leah, was born as Jacqueline and raised in the country of Panama in a non-Jewish home.  From a young age she was an accomplished child prodigy in the area of music and played and sang at numerous weddings and musical events throughout Latin America. As a teenager her parents sent her to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to learn new music styles and to further develop her natural talent to play by ear, improvise and compose.

Jacqueline, who was a deeply spiritual child, was already asking questions about her identity, her beliefs, and her religion.  Soon after marriage in 1987 to her husband, Marco Polo Nunez who was raised in a Christian evangelical home, she realized that she and her husband shared a deep spiritual connection and a common pursuit; that of finding the purest form of Truth in their quest to connect to G‑d. ChanaLeah’s presentation is a fascinating story about an individual who had a heartfelt and deep desire to live a life serving G‑d in the truest sense and through Divine Providence, came to the doors of Judaism in 1998.

ChanaLeah has an ability to develop a strong connection with her audience, and her story keeps everyone engaged and inspired from beginning to end. People walk away with added motivation to climb the mountain of life and change the world for good.  Her story has made a tremendous impact and touched the lives of many women all over the globe.

Option 2 - "Live to Work, Not Work to Live"

With Shaina Trapedo.

Now more than ever we are being pushed to strike a "work- life balance".  However, this life model is fundamentally flawed.  As Jews living in the 21st century we need a new compass that is not "balanced" and instead of pointing north, points south.  We need to learn how to live to work, not work to live.

Shaina originally from Upland, CA, attended school in Los Angeles, seminary in Jerusalem, and college in NY.  Though she began her professional career in corportate America as a risk analyst for a multinational firm, she is now following her calling in academia.  Shaina received her Masters in English from UCI and is currently pursuing her PH.D. while raising her three beautiful children in Irvine, CA.
