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.
Advocating for at-risk women and girls worldwide
JWI’s trusted and expert voice on Capitol Hill advocates for national policy and federal legislation that protects the rights of women and girls around reproductive health, violence protection and economic parity and security.
BUILDING FINANCIAL LITERACY AND ECONOMIC SECURITY
JWI teaches the importance of financial security across the generations – to girls and their mothers, college graduates and women of all generations.
Ensuring the safety of women, girls and families
JWI confronts the issue of violence against women and girls from many sides, from prevention programming for teens and young adults to education and training for thousands of professionals and advocates.
Building unique faith and interfaith alliances
JWI spearheads an interdenominational Jewish Clergy Task Force as well as an Interfaith Domestic Violence Coalition – both dedicated to preventing and ending gender based violence.
JWI promotes interactive leadership by highlighting and honoring today’s Jewish women leaders to uncovering those who will rise tomorrow; we are constantly encouraging the cycle of inspiration from one generation of Jewish women leaders to the next.
JWI invests in projects that underscore our mission and work. From opening brand new children’s libraries to sending special Mother’s Day flowers and gifts to domestic violence shelters in the U.S to supporting the Jerusalem Hills Children’s Home in Israel, all benefit from JWI’s annual giving.
