Jewish Women’s Archive
The mission of the Jewish Women's Archive (JWA) is to uncover, chronicle, and transmit the rich history of American Jewish women.
Since its founding in 1995, the Jewish Women's Archive (JWA) has been developing innovative formats and collaborative partnerships to transmit the rich history of American Jewish women and their accomplishments to a broad public. JWA seeks to make known the contributions of outstanding Jewish women of achievement as well as the profound, but often unacknowledged impact Jewish women have had within their local communities. One of the first organizations in the Jewish community to recognize and invest in the potential of the internet for academic, cultural, archival, and educational purposes, JWA continues to innovate in its use of technology to convey and provide access to Jewish women's stories on its website.
The Jewish Women's Archive (JWA) is for scholars, for activists, for mothers and daughters, for fathers and sons, for researchers, historians, and for all who believe that everyone with a stake in history is a keeper of it and a partner in its transmission.
