History Biographical
Jewish Women International is the name of the former B'nai Brith Women. The head office of JWIC Canada is in Toronto, and the Montreal office has been sending copies of all its minutes, publications and other documents to the head office. B'nai Brith of Canada was established in 1875, disbanded by 1900 and re-established in 1909. The Montreal women's lodge was first founded in [1939]. Its spheres of interest are Canada and Israel, but it provides non-sectarian aid to those who need it. B'nai Brith Women's services include youth and adult Jewish education programs, human rights activism, community service, assistance to Israel, programs for the disadvantaged and the handicapped, and public affairs.
Custodial History
The collection was donated by Tzipie Freedman, JWIC regional director, on June 11, 2009.
Notes
P09/13.Documents women's activities and the evolution of B'nai Brith Women/Jewish Women International's focus. The organization is now concerned primarily with the prevention of violence against women.
