Great organizations spreading Feminism and inclusion into the Jewish community. As a Rabbi at an all-women's college, I use their materials regularly and share them with my students.

send speakers to many smaller communities and reach female Jewish college students (a relatively untapped resource for them).

Ways to make it better...

More of their events took place outside of New York/Boston, etc.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Tilt to the right in Orthodoxy

JOFA provides a thrilling and unusual sense of community for Orthodox Jewish women and families who are also committed to the values of feminism.

I have experience volunteering for and being active in many Jewish organizations, as well as organiations with some feminist ideology. However, JOFA's turning to me in the year 2000 to ask me to lecture was only the first indication of the inclusivity of JOFA and its constant search for redefining needs of Jewish women. Since then I have been part of brainstorming, projects, conferences--at the same time as being active in other organizations. JOFA IS THE MOST MATURE of them all. There is ongoing development and reassesment of direction, with very wise decisioins being made--thus leading jewish women and answering their evolving needs.
