Online History Courses

Every other month, JWA presents virtual courses with scholars of Jewish women’s history, delving into the lives, challenges, choices, and innovations of Jewish women who changed our story. Sessions are designed to stand alone, so attend as many evenings as you’d like! No advanced reading or preparation required. Registrants will receive the Zoom link and access to session recordings.

Stay tuned for future courses!

Suggested $36/person donation for the course
