The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia strongly condemns hate speech in our community and throughout the world. When anti-Semitic hate speech was expressed by Temple University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, we immediately took action with national and local partners. We have and will continue to condemn comments that reject the state of Israel and the Jewish connection to our homeland.

We are visionary women who support justice and social change through hands-on philanthropy and grantmaking.

Women of Vision, Philadelphia’s Jewish Women’s Foundation, transforms the lives of Jewish women and girls in Greater Philadelphia and in Israel. We choose innovative programs that create long-term change, addressing the underlying problems girls and women face.

What We Do

Through our advocacy efforts, we educate over 500 members and the general public about issues like equal pay for equal work and sex trafficking. At our events, we grapple with challenges faced by girls and women, such as gun violence and college campus issues. We not only raise awareness, we find hands-on opportunities to take action.

Join in our vision and become a member of our foundation to find out how rewarding strategic grant making can be.

Advocate

Throughout the year Women of Vision provides members with educational programs and materials about pressing issues facing Jewish women and girls, as well as opportunities to advocate on their behalf, such as meetings with elected officials in Washington, D.C., and Harrisburg.

Give

Your contribution supports programs that enhance the lives of women and girls regionally and in Israel. Each woman has a vote in choosing how the funding is allocated each year.

Connect

Our work together not only strengthens our community at home; through our grant making we also build connections with women and girls in Israel.

Carry Traditions Forward

Jewish women are the carriers of many Jewish traditions. By empowering Jewish women, we ensure the continuity of Jewish values and the strength of the Jewish community.
