HELPING WOMEN & FAMILIES IN ISRAEL THRIVE
Jan Gurvitch Installed As President Of NA’AMAT USA
Longtime NA’AMAT member Jan Gurvitch has been installed as the newest President of the National Board of NA’AMAT USA. The ceremony took place at NA’AMAT’s 43rd National Convention when it was convened in Israel this past November. In her acceptance speech, Gurvitch recognized the legacy of the Pioneer Women and NA’AMAT members who came before her. “I am grateful to those women who were trailblazers in their day. They believed in the dignity and equality of all women. They believed in a state where social justice would be the norm and not the exception. And these women took these dreams and ideals and made them realities for generations to come.”

From visiting the Women’s Health & Empowerment Center in Sderot, near the Gaza border, to touring the Kanot boarding school with its dairy farm and equestrian program, attendees of NA’AMAT USA’s recent convention in Israel saw firsthand how NA’AMAT dramatically changes lives for the better, while also learning about the harsh realities the organization confronts every day.
A Letter from Our President on Covid-19
March 18, 2020
These are unprecedented times. Every aspect of our lives has been impacted, cancelled or delayed. Please follow the Local, State, CDC recommendations. Practice Social Distancing, frequent and thorough hand washing, use of hand sanitizers and avoiding large gatherings of people.
To that end, I would like to ask all chapters to consider suspending in-person meetings. We currently have the technology and ability to conduct virtual meetings. So, we are exploring the possibility of having a training seminar to show clubs how to conduct their own Zoom, Skype or GoTo Meetings.
