Iranian American Jewish Federation (IAJF)

Women Committee

The main goal of the Women Division of IAJF is to work with member organizations of IAJF in identifying social issues facing the Iranian Jewish Women in our community, with special emphasis on the welfare of our families, and youth within our community.

Women Division   Intends to develop a plan that would address these issues and coordinate with member organization to put this plan into action.

To implement this goal in two separate occasions we invited the Boards of Directors of affiliated organizations for joint meetings. A questionnaire was past around and the opinion of organizationís leaders were asked. Subsequently the issues identified as most pressing were discussed and analyzed by the group. The result and summery of these findings will be soon be published in Shofar Magazine.
