JWI empowers women and girls to thrive.
Jewish Women International (JWI) is the leading Jewish organization working to empower women and girls by ensuring and protecting their physical safety and economic security, promoting and celebrating inter-generational leadership, and inspiring civic participation and community engagement.
Inspired by our legacy of progressive women’s leadership and guided by our Jewish values, JWI works to ensure that all women and girls thrive in healthy relationships, control their financial futures and realize the full potential of their personal strength.
Deborah Rosenbloom, JWI’s VP of programs & new initiatives, will be speaking on an interfaith panel at the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s national conference on Tuesday, September 17th at 10:30 a.m. in Washington, D.C.
Jewish Communal Women’s Leadership Project
JWI is launching an innovative new Jewish Communal Women’s Leadership Project designed to place more women in top positions in the Jewish communal world.
National Library Initiative
JWI's National Library Initiative builds children's libraries in domestic violence shelters and fills them with books, furniture, computers, printers... all the resources young victims of abuse need to escape chaos and succeed in school when they're at risk of falling behind.
JWI’s multi-faceted work to end violence against women includes educating teens and college students to #ChangeTheCulture; empowering Jewish clergy and domestic violence professionals to better serve victims; and helping organizations create safe, equitable workplaces.
JWI is at work from the state house to the White House demanding laws and policies to end violence against women, protect women’s health, and ensure economic security.
In domestic violence shelters across the United States, JWI is creating children’s libraries, delivering Mother’s Day bouquets and gifts, and providing financial literacy resources for women building new lives after they’ve survived and escaped abuse.
