NA'AAMT - Western Council

Western Area Office

Welcome to the Western Area of NA’AMAT USA!

The NA’AMAT members participate in monthly chapter meetings, which have varied and enriching programs such as speakers, Jewish holiday celebrations, “getting to know you” activities, and other fundraising events. The chapters have special interest groups such as docent tours, book clubs, theater groups, game days or nights, “ladies who lunch,” and Yiddish club. 

We have our annual 5K Walk at Balboa Park. We also have a speaker series with topics presented on the subjects of Human Trafficking, the Lone Soldier Program in Israel, and much more.

Due to the pandemic, many of our in-person events/programs have moved online. We are still having stimulating, informative, and fun programs that help our members stay in meaningful contact.

The Greater Los Angeles Region (GLAR) has adopted the Aviva Family and Children’s Services as our local charity, as it parallels some of the programs that NA’AMAT supports in Israel. They provide support and programs to single women with children who come from homes below the federal poverty level.  

We encompass the Greater Los Angeles Region (GLAR) in California and chapters in Arizona and Nevada. The GLAR is comprised of Eilat, Golda (Persian), Mitzvah, Natanya, Nili, Ora, and Simcha (Persian) chapters. Las Vegas, Nevada is home to the Rimonim chapter. And in Phoenix, Arizona we have the Mitzvah chapter. 

Please call our Western Area Office if you would like to join NA’AMAT USA and be a part of a dynamic group of women who have fun while raising money for Israeli women and children. There is a chapter that is just right for you!
