When philanthropist Barbara Dobkin founded Ma’yan in 1993, her goal was to foster the women’s movement within Jewish communities. Which is exactly what Ma’yan achieved: Based out of the JCC Manhattan, the organization published an influential feminist Passover Haggadah; helped launch the Ritualwell website — offering new resources for spiritual practice — and worked with teen girls to explore personal development, critical inquiry and ethical leadership.
Now, Dobkin and longtime collaborator Eve Landau, who has served as Ma’yan’s executive director throughout its tenure, are setting their sights even wider: In July, Ma’yan will be folded into a new Center for Social Responsibility at the JCC. Landau will serve as the director of the new center, which launches at the start of the JCC’s new fiscal year, July 1.
