Women’s Philanthropy Featured Programs

Take part in Federation’s Young Women’s Coalition (YWC) to meet other women with young children and a passion for Jewish life. Through our monthly Coffee & Conversations and other exclusive events, learn about Federation’s work locally and overseas, and discuss the critical issues affecting our families and community. YWC is dedicated to building Jewish life by strengthening ourselves, our homes and our community. Together we are creating a more vibrant Jewish future.

Informed by the value of tikkun olam (repairing the world), Mitzvah Mavens—a group of extraordinary women who span multiple generations—volunteer to make a difference in our community. In the past, among its many projects, Mitzvah Mavens have packed food for hungry kids, hosted a Holocaust survivors luncheon and made Mother’s Day baskets for domestic abuse survivors. With four social action opportunities throughout the year, we invite you to join us for one or all!  (Check here for upcoming Mitzvah Mavens events.)

The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington offers many opportunities to make a difference and build community: events exclusive to women, programs for families with young children, opportunities to volunteer, chances to explore modern Jewish food, transformative overseas missions to learn about Jewish communities abroad, and experiences that help us connect with Israel and the local Jewish community. The Jewish Federation provides countless ways to get involved in our community.
