The Founder & Director
Sigy is the founder and director of JEMS, Jewish Experience Montreal Sisterhood, a Kiruv organization, which empowers Jewish women to restore Jewish values in their family and community through year round learning and trips to Israel. She has been a community leader for 26 years in her hometown, Montreal, and inspired countless souls through her disciplined example, charismatic approach and personal journey.
As a young volunteer and member of many Jewish organizations, she attended numerous funerals and decided to live her life as she wants her eulogy to read. Since then, Sigy embarked on a mission to grow in Torah and Mitzvot and lead her initially reluctant husband and young family on the journey of Teshuva.
As a 9th generation Sabra, raised outside of Israel, she always wanted to give back to her country and people. Sigy lectures in 3 languages internationally at schools, seminaries, synagogues and various women events on topics of:
The Power of Shabbat
The Gift of Mikvah
Kavanot of Challah Making
Women building Jewish homes
Raising proud and responsible children and more
Sigy met her husband Max at the age of 16 years, together they have passionately worked side-by-side building and running a financial brokerage firm and giving back to the community by teaching martial arts benevolently.
Today, Sigy and Max are the proud parents of five sons, two daughters-in-love and six grandchildren.
