Review for Jewish Women's Archive, Brookline, MA, USA
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.
