What We Do
JWI's initiatives anchor our commitment to safe homes, healthy relationships and strong women. We proudly lead the Jewish community in domestic violence prevention – teaching young women and girls about healthy relationships; helping all women develop economic literacy skills; giving women and children a voice on Capitol Hill. We also lead in healing abuse victims, with children’s libraries in domestic violence shelters and a brand new home for Israeli children undergoing intensive residential therapy. And through our award-winning Jewish Woman magazine, JWI motivates every Jewish woman to explore and enrich her individual lifestyle.
JWI is unique among Jewish organizations in our determination to protect the well-being of women and girls – from physical safety to financial security; from personal leadership to collective empowerment. Our diverse programs teach, engage, inspire and save lives.
Get involved! Whether you're a professional working in the domestic violence field, a teacher working with tweens or teens, or a philanthropist looking to make a difference in your community, we have programs that match the needs and resources in your community.
