Jewish Women's Archive is an excellent organization that provides a much-needed platform for women's voices. They provide excellent educational resources for the lay person and the scholar alike. JWA is a truly valuable resource that deserves lots of support!
JWA is an amazing resource for all things about Jewish Women! The historic materials available on their site as well as their current contributions to the conversation about Jewish Women keep me motivated to support and encourage others to use JWA. The two most impressive and inspiring aspects of JWA are their innovative section called Power Couples [jwa.org/powercouples] and the Rising Voices fellowship[ jwa.org/blog/risingvoices.]
I am a Museum Educator and PhD candidate in US History who stumbled upon JWA's "Living the Legacy" lesson plans while doing research into museum distance learning. I am extremely impressed with how thoroughly these lessons treat Jewish involvement in the Civil Rights Movement from a variety of perspectives, including Southern Jewish families, Northern participants in Freedom Rides, their families, their clergy, how these experiences were gendered, communicated through pop culture, and more. I was, in fact, so impressed, that I picked up the phone to compliment the person responsible. Etta King was extremely helpful in sharing the pedagogical thinking, successes and shortcomings of Living the Legacy, and followed up immediately with useful resources for me to use in designing my own materials.
I have used JWA for class teaching, professional development, and personal inspiration. I appreciate the staff members and their products. The website is neat, accessible, and engaging. Kudos to JWA!
I’m not Jewish. I’m not a woman. And yet I’m taking the time to write a review about Jewish Women’s Archive. Why? Because they’ve taken time to help me. Recently I visited their award-winning site to access some educational material. When I requested personalized assistance, the response was immediate and exceeded expectations. If there was a contest for “people behind-the-scenes of award-winning websites,” these folks would win.
Jewish Women's Archive has a great staff that readily provides materials for educators that are current and poignant. Tech savvy, friendly and providing workshops, this organization is a gem. As an independent eductor the resources and outreach have supported me in bringing the work of our tradtion forward. Thank you for being there.
I am a Jewish Feminist global activist who using the Jewish Women's Archives as a resource both personally and professionally as a public health nurse and health reporter.
It is where I can find academic resources, great tools for the global activism I am involved in and make a call to them when I need something for an interview or personal Jewish life event.
Glad they exist.
Without this organization, the stories of Jewish women would be lost . Since JWA was established, Jewish women are being reclaimed and are becoming part of the telling of history. The website offers accessible information and provides information and role models for girls growing up today.
this is a great website. even though I'm not an American I find it super useful, especially the history stuff. It's so important that women's history doesn't get lost. They do their best to preserve and keep women's history, and especially the history of Jewish women, who tend to be the unseen, unspoken holders up of Jewish tradition - without whom Jewish tradition wouldn't even exist!
The Jewish Women's Archive is just great.
