As an independent eductor the resources and outreach have supported me in bringing the work of our tradtion forward. Thank you for being there.

It's hard to know how to choose a catagory in the above "Your role." I settled on "client served," since that was my first encounter with JWA, and certainly continues today. As a supplementary school Jewish educator, I'm always looking for resources that will engage my students in their Jewish heritage. While searching for information on the Jewish role in the Civil Right Movement, I found their curriculum, rich in primary sources, It really helped me bring the experience of that time to my students.

I have since participated in the JWA Educator Institute where I was not only able to get valuable training in using their curriculum and sources, but became connected with other educators from across the country. JWA encourages educators to make the curriculum their own, supporting us with guidance to find the materials we need, and giving us a forum to bounce ideas off others.

Jewish Women's Archive is an organization that works hard to fulfill its mission to preserve so much of modern Jewish history. They are not concerned with just gathering material and storing it away. They understand the need to bring these stories to the next generations, who can learn from the past to take action in the present, thus making a better future.

A friend put me onto the Jewish Women's Archive when I was hunting for material for a Master's dissertation on Madam Gertrud Bodenwieser who was my dance teacher's teacher. I completed the MA but the material spilled over into PhD studies which I am pursuing presently. I have used the Archive's invaluable resources for numbers of leads and have been sent off on many research twists and turns, often making unexpected connections as a consequence. Furthermore, I have received prompt and very useful advice from Mr Stephen Benson with enquiries outside the scope of the Archive. I hope the work of augmenting the Archive continues so that younger researchers may avail themselves of its treasures and even contribute to it.

JWA has inspired a new direction in both my interests and my teaching. The beautifully crafted summer teacher workshops they conduct have opened a door to a world of expansive resources and collegial connections which I have only begun to plumb. I have changed direction in the electives I offer to upperclassmen at the school where I teach, because the support of the website and the publications of JWA provide me with the materials and confidence I require to take this new curricular direction.

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!

This is one of the best and most comprehensive achival teaching tools on the net. Not only does the website contain interesting and useful information, it presents it in a way that is entertaining and eminently understandable. The material you can find here can be used, either via the "Go and Learn" curricula, or by independent design, across grade levels. The JWA has something for every type of educator interested in teaching about some of the greatest American women of the modern age.

The Great!

We LOVE JWA and their curricular materials, especially the Go and Learn fully-developed lesson plans. The Educators' Summer Conference gave us an opportunity to fully develop an educational program that I delivered and have been invited to do again. Their online archive is amazing as is their Oral History guidebook.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The caliber of professors, instructors, and staff they brought to the summer conference.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue to pay generous stipends to their attendees. I truly felt my time was honored when I received a stipend.
