The Jewish Women’s Foundation of New York hosts events throughout the year. The purpose of these programs is to educate our members and the public about topics important to women and girls in the Jewish community. Members are encouraged to bring friends, colleagues and family who may be interested. Please check the website for updated event details or contact the office at 212-836-1478.


Briefings are intimate gatherings for members and non-members led by a guest speaker on a topic relevant to women. Past topics include: Exploring Diversity in the Jewish Community, Investment Strategies for Women, and Prayer Leading Skills for Women.


Symposiums are large events held twice a year to educate the community on topics related to women and girls in the Jewish community. Past topics included women in the workforce, Jewish women and sobriety, adolescent development and women’s health.

Annual Meeting

JWFNY meets annually to introduce the Foundation to the community and highlight the year’s achievements. At this time, we also hear from our grantees and induct our new officers and directors. This meeting is open to the public; all are welcome to join us!

Benefit Luncheon

Each year the Benefit Luncheon is attended by hundreds of women who help introduce our mission to a broad audience and raise critical funds for the Foundation. We were delighted to honor these three extraordinary women at our May 2014 luncheon: Marilyn Berger, Marion Bergman and Carol B. Einiger. We were thrilled to have Paula Zahn once again serve as Mistress of Ceremonies.
