Why Women’s History Matters: A Journey through the Jewish Women’s Archive

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

“When I started working on women’s history… people didn’t think that women had a history worth knowing.” – Pioneering historian Gerda Lerner, who would go on to assert that women’s history is not merely additive but transformative.

Born into a wealthy Jewish family in Vienna, Gerda got to New York in 1939, as the only one in her family able to get a visa. Hers is just one of many powerful stories preserved and told thanks to the Jewish Women’s Archive (JWA), a groundbreaking digital project now celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Join Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, CEO of the JWA, for a journey through the archive, highlighting stories of Jewish women as innovators, community builders, and change makers, around the world and throughout history!
