In every day and age, the voices of Jewish women have shaped Jewish history. The Jewish Women’s Foundation of Metropolitan Detroit is a vehicle for maintaining this legacy. It provides a way for Jewish women to support the causes in which we most passionately believe, and to have a lasting impact on the lives of women and girls.
The Jewish Women’s Foundation (JWF) was established in August 1999 by the Jewish Federation and United Jewish Foundation of Metropolitan Detroit. Studies show that women often turn first to institutions affiliated with their religious backgrounds for help and support.
