Jewish Women's Archive

From the website:

"The mission of the Jewish Women's Archive (JWA) is to uncover, chronicle, and transmit to a broad public the rich history of American Jewish women.

A national non-profit organization founded in 1995, the Jewish Women's Archive is devoted to making known the stories, struggles, and achievements of Jewish women in North America in order to enrich the way we understand the past and to ensure a more inclusive future. JWA has amassed the most extensive collection of material anywhere on American Jewish women, and it can be accessed for free by anyone with an Internet connection. Our website is a destination for people seeking knowledge, a sense of connection and community, and a way to affirm and enhance the legacy of American Jewish women."

Of particular interest to scholars is the Research Tools page which includes the Jewish Women Encyclopedia which contains much information about Jewish women (both in individual biographies as well as in entries on organisations such as the Bund and the Yiddishe Froyen Asosiatsiye in Eastern Europe and beyond. It is also possible to locate archival holdings of particular individuals as well as oral histories.
