Jewish Women’s Archive Announces Revamped Website

Founded in 1995, The Jewish Women’s Archive (JWA.org) has just invited everyone to take their first look at the fully revamped, wholly redesigned jwa.org website. Over a year in the making, and designed in partnership with Navigation Arts, the new website offers:

A bold look that reflects the spirit of the women showcased on jwa.org

New navigation for easier browsing and exploration of JWA’s collections and profiles

Intuitive design and updated content, from our thought-provoking blog to online programs

Mobile access so you’ll have jwa.org at hand on your phone or tablet

Eighteen years ago, the Jewish Women’s Archive launched with a radical idea: to give Jewish women their rightful place in history and make their stories and achievements accessible to anyone. At jwa.org, you (along with 1.2 million visitors each year) will find the world’s largest repository of material about Jewish women in North America and beyond. And now you can easily access that material on any mobile device and navigate through it more smoothly than ever.

It is the world’s largest repository of material about and gives voice to Jewish women, both celebrated and unheralded, and allows visitors to explore “their bravery and legacies. Honor and learn from their lives. And ignite your own capacity to change the world.”

JWA offers knowledge, inspiration, role models, connection, community, and a treasure trove of resources. Search JWA’s online Encyclopedia of Jewish women, download lesson plans and other educational materials, visit online exhibits on topics as diverse as “Jewish Women and the Feminist Revolution” and “Katrina’s Jewish Voices,” discover book and film guides, view the growing collection of reminiscences of recently deceased Jewish women, and much more.

If you are an educator, JWA helps you enhance your work through high-quality curricular resources and professional development.

If you are a researcher, make JWA your first stop for planning new projects, gathering trustworthy information and finding primary sources.

If you’re learning more about your family or community, JWA helps you capture personal stories with oral history guidance and tools.

The Slingshot Supplement on Women and Girls wrote: “The Jewish Women’s Archive (JWA) stands alone in pushing forward an agenda of inclusion of women in Jewish history.” Now in its 18th year, “JWA has changed the conversation in the North American Jewish community to be more inclusive of all its members, working to ensure that no child ever receives an education that leaves out half of the story.”  Gail Twersky Reimer is the organization’s Executive Director.
