Are all of you aware of This Week in History, JWA's incredible calendar of events in Jewish women's history? We try to make it as accessible as possible. You can read it on jwa.org, Twitter, Facebook, in a weekly email, on that neat little badge thingie on the side of this page, and many of them are even showing up On the Map.
