  The History Of ShifraOQdk9893853.jpg

The name of this program comes from a story that takes place in ancient Egypt. Two courageous midwifes disobeyed the Pharaoh’s decree to murder all Hebrew male babies born in Egypt. These women were Shifra and Puah and they are remembered for their commitment to preserving human life that provided the safe and secret delivery of Hebrew children. We took the spirit of Shifra and embodied her love of family to create Project Shifra, a community based program supporting women, children, and families.
