We started with a vision: Jewish women philanthropists in South Jersey pooling their resources and raising awareness on issues often unmet in the Jewish community.
A group of Lion of Judah donors formed the Jewish Women’s Foundation (JWF), believing that together, we can create opportunities to bring positive change to the lives of Jewish women and girls.
Today, our mission is to provide grants for programs and services that directly benefit or are of great importance to Jewish women and girls in South Jersey and around the world. Acting as a committee of the whole, our membership endeavors to empower women as funders, decision makers, and agents for change.
Our membership of talented, intelligent and motivated women:
*Lion of Judah is an international honor society that recognizes women who make individual gifts of $5,000 or more to the Jewish Federation's JFund campaign.
JWF funds organizations that address issues through a gender and Jewish lens. We are interested in projects that recognize Jewish women and girls as having unique needs due to both their gender and their religious and cultural heritage.
