Today, March 8th we are marking International Women’s Day – to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
This year #internationalwomensday appropriately falls just before Purim, a holiday in which an important Jewish heroine – Queen Esther – played such a key role in our history.
For many years in March – during Women’s History Month – the American Zionist Movement has highlighted “FeminIsrael” to focus on and draw attention to Israeli women and female Zionist leaders and their tremendous contributions to the State of Israel, Zionism and the Jewish people.
AZM is proud to have among its constituent members five women’s Zionist Organizations – AMIT; Emunah of America; Hadassah – Women’s Zionist Organization of America; NA’AMAT USA And WIZO USA.
