Sharing Stories Inspiring Change

Share

Our supporters

We thank each and every donor for sharing the JWA vision of rescuing and preserving Jewish women’s stories to inspire a new generation with their courage, wisdom, and strength. Each new, renewed or increased gift not only sustains this work but allows us to expand our reach to deepen JWA’s impact on the hearts and minds of our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
