JWA's website is the first and last place I check when I want to know anything and everything about Jewish women's history. I've used the site when teaching my 7th grade religious school class and while teaching a college course. The website is engaging and interactive. The staff is incredibly responsive and helpful. I'm so proud to be associated with JWA!

I helped create a pilot project for the archives at the beginning of its' exploration of how best to outreach to a broad audience for stories, funding and expansion of a core idea and ideal. It took shape as an oral history project, an art exhibit, and a historical exhibit and it involved three organizations working together to bring about this very rewarding community event. It was replicated in two other cities and proved to be a successful event.

Within its relatively short history, the Jewish Women's Archive has become a leader and a powerful voice not only in the Jewish community, but beyond. The JWA is making a significant impact, both in bringing much needed attention to the lives and voices of American Jewish women, but also as a leader in creative thinking and innovation in its uses of modern information technology. Through the vision of its director, Gail Reimer, and its dedicated staff, the JWA has become a trusted and indispensable resource for all in raising awareness and interest in the history of American Jewish women and in advocating for the rights and concerns of women of all ages, backgrounds and beliefs.

The Jewish Women's Archive provides exceptional services to educational institutions around the country. The information gathered and distributed by the Archive is truly one of a kind. It is in-depth information that has not been provided to educational institutions in any other form.We have utilized lesson plans and materials provided by the Archive in Lexington Kentucky and it has really enriched our educational programming.

The Jewish Women's Archive provides wonderful materials for my students and for my own scholarship. The American Jewess on-line edition, which it makes available, is a fabulous resource, and has been used by many of my students as the basis for research papers. The Encyclopedia of Jewish Women, made available through its website, is an invaluable secondary source, which I use regularly. Its articles on American Jewish women are as a rule definitive and well-written. Anyone interested in American Jewish women should find material of value on the JWA website. Jonathan D.

As a university professor I find JWA an indispensable source for students. I teach at a large public research university. The majority of the students I teach are not Jewish and often no very little about Jews and Judaism. The JWA's historical timeline has been tremendously helpful to students in writing papers and reflecting on larger cultural issues. The presence of primary sources, bibliography and more in an easily accessible and beautifully constructed website is a great teaching tool.

I love that the JWA is telling the stories of women doers and activists, many of whom have not been recognized publicly before. I love that it is frankly feminist in its perspective and that it melds the woman's Jewish story with her secular story--no other group does that yet each of us is a tapestry of these cultural threads. And if you haven't seen the excellent video about Jewish comediennes, "Making Trouble", get it right away--you're in for a treat.
