JOFA is a very empowering organization for traditional Jewish women. They lead the way in curriculum development, Jewish ritual practices, and scholarship that promotes gender equality within halacha.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading the and learning from their amazing Journal, participating in the annual conference.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make the programming more regional - partnering with synagogues across the country for lectures, movies, etc.

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

Getting to know so many women in the forefront of Jewish scholarship.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very smart and professional

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

change the world.

Ways to make it better...

Their office was local (in my area)and I was able to participate more often in programs.

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

creating a more sophisticated board in the areas of development, marketing and recruitment.

One thing I'd also say is that...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
