Women's Philanthropy

There is much in our tradition that instructs us about women's giving. Judaism teaches us to love learning, to do good deeds, to practice tzedakah and to be responsible for one another. Each of us is responsible to help in making the world a more perfect place.

Today, women from all walks of life have discovered the satisfaction, fulfillment and powerful impact that comes from an individual commitment. Through personal involvement, women are effecting policy and influencing change in our community.

"Each of us has three names: the name we are given at birth, the name we are called, and most important, the name we make for ourselves."
