Award for Exceptional Program from JCC of Greater Boston
In 1997, JWA completed its first oral history project conducting interviews with women of Temple Israel in Boston whose lives spanned the 20th century. The combination of oral history interviews, photographs, and works of art inspired by them earned JWA the Exceptional Program of 1997-1998 award from the JCC of Greater Boston. The Women Whose Lives Span the Century project inspired JWA’s next oral history endeavors in Baltimore and Seattle. These oral history projects were the basis for developing our oral history guide.
Today, this certificate is framed and displayed on a wall in our front hall where it reminds us how much we have done over the past 15 years to advance JWA's mission—to uncover, chronicle, and transmit to a broad public the rich history of American Jewish women.
