JWF Monthly Advocacy Issues Update

Dear JWF Trustees and Friends:  
We are pleased to share the Advocacy Committee's May update highlighting our grantees and issues impacting Jewish women and girls.
Nancy shares, "I've really enjoyed my tenure as advocacy chair for the past few years, and am happy to announce that Sue Rifas will be taking over in June. We can look forward to her leadership in the advocacy arena.  I am looking forward to continuing my work as the new chair of the foundation, succeeding Gerri Kahnweiler who has been a friend, mentor and cousin by choice!"  

As always, please feel free to pass along any information you think we should share with our Trustees.


Nancy Kohn, Advocacy Committee Chair
Sara Kalish, Senior Program Officer
