Imagine More: Virtual Exhibit Highlights the Influential Women of JDC


Learn about the women who oversaw operations, trained the next generation of aid workers, and led emigration and relief programs on behalf of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC). These health and childcare innovators, humanitarian advocates, and community builders became the backbone of JDC activities worldwide. Through photographs, quotes, audio, and film, the exhibit illustrates their impact. Meet the women of JDC!

All photographs, documents, audio, and film presented in this exhibit are from the digitized online collection of the JDC Archives. Additional photos on this topic may be found on the JDC Archives website and by searching its online database.
