The Jewish Women's Archive, a national non-profit organization founded in 1995, chronicles the stories, struggles, and achievements of Jewish women in North America. We develop partnerships, sponsor programs, conduct and support original research, create educational materials, and maintain an innovative website all designed to help us understand our past and shape our future. We invite people to share stories, express opinions, pose questions. Some seek insight into a collective history. Others yearn for a stronger sense of community. Many hope to explore more fully the richness of Jewish culture. A great number share our passion for making the world a more just and equitable place. The Jewish Women's Archive is as creative, vibrant, and dynamic as the people it serves -- we hear their voices, some reflective, others defiant; each one powerful. Please visit us online at jwa.org. The resources for this project have been made available through a generous grant from Nicki Newman Tanner. With the help of the Digital Commonwealth, we are now creating access to oral histories collected over the past 10 years. Available here are transcripts and the original interview audio from Jewish American women who have impacted their communities in many ways.
