Washington, D.C. – Following the latest in months’ long series of anti-Semitic attacks, JWI CEO Lori Weinstein issues the following statement:
Jewish Women International (JWI) decries the latest in months of anti-Semitic attacks. Be it desecration of our cemeteries or bomb threats to our schools and community centers, this is a whole-sale attack, threatening every level of our Jewish families and community.
President Trump, we call on you to speak out, condemn these evil acts, and to immediately appoint your administration’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism to put into place real action that will keep our families…your family…safe.
We know that when one minority is unsafe, no minority is safe.

JWI is a Steering Committee member of the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence Against Women and convenes the Interfaith Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence and the Clergy Task Force to End Domestic Abuse in the Jewish Community, and is a member of the Gun Violence Table. JWI’s advocacy efforts focus on the passage of legislation that supports women and girls, ensures their economic security, and protects their right to live free of violence.
