Women's Philanthropy


A multi-generational community of women in the Lehigh Valley from all walks of life who have discovered the fulfillment and powerful impact that comes from an individual commitment to Federation’s work locally, in Israel and around the world.



What We Do
Through our hands-on community service and donations, we help people in need and keep Jewish life in the Lehigh Valley and around the world strong and vibrant. We volunteer together, learn together, travel together and party together at fun events that forge meaningful connections between like-minded women.

Get Engaged
Hear fascinating speakers and build relationships. Stay on top of issues affecting the Jewish community so you can become an informed leader among your peers. Get the inside story about Jewish Federation dollars at work, at home and overseas.

Make a Difference
Join a generous group of women who raise nearly $1 million annually for Jewish Federation-supported programs and services. Our collective philanthropy enriches our own lives while improving the lives of others.
