Not only do I support the Jewish Women's Archive and its mission, but I have had the pleasure of personally benefitting from their work. My granddaughter was given an assignment to write about a Jewish woman made an important contribution to American life. Through the Jewish Women's Archive, she found several women in sports, commerce, and community life whom she admired but didn't know where Jewish. She now regularly refers her friends to the JWA website and aspires to become a Jewish woman who will make her own important contributions. Her 23 first cousins (girls and boys) have joined her as fans of the Jewish Women's Archive, too.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Expand its work to include many more stories -- both first person and through documented research. It could also train more educators to include, in their cirricula, the role of women in shaping American Jewish life.
