Barbara Dobkin

Pre-eminent Jewish feminist philanthropist Barbara Dobkin credits her grandmother, the neighborhood “key-holder” for the Jewish National Fund zedakah boxes, for instilling in her a life-long passion for large-scale giving to the global Jewish community. Co-founder of MA’YAN: The Jewish Women’s Project and former chair of The Jewish Women’s Archive, Dobkin has established and funded numerous projects that seek to raise the status of Jewish women and build the self-esteem of Jewish women and girls.
