Western Area Office

Welcome to the Western Area of NA’AMAT USA!

Our members participate in monthly chapter meetings as well as fund-raising events such as an annual Spring Luncheon and a Distinguished Community Leader Award luncheon that takes place in the Fall. Many “Special Interest” groups include day trips, barbecues, theme parties, docent tours, book clubs, theater groups, game days or nights, Yiddish club, and “women who lunch.”

The San Fernando Valley Council (SFVC) has adopted the LA Homeless Shelter and has provided support through birthday celebrations and a day of pampering for women and teens. Celebrating holidays together by sharing a meal in a Sukkah, lighting Hanukkah candles, or holding a Women’s Seder are especially meaningful to our members.

In June 2018 we held our second annual 5K Walk in the San Fernando Valley and an “Empowering Women” speaker series was launched in 2017 with topics presented on the subject of “Human Trafficking” and “Sexual Harassment.”

We encompass a Council and Chapters in California, Arizona, and Nevada for all ages, young adults to seniors. The SFVC is comprised of Eilat, Golda (Persian), Natanya, Nili, Mitzvah, and Tikvah Chapters. The Los Angeles Council includes the Maria Shvarts Chapter and the Bel Air Chapter (Persian) while Las Vegas, Nevada is home to Rimonim Chapter and in Phoenix we have Mitzvah Chapter. The Golda Meir and Roslyn Leff/Avodah Chapters are located in Laguna Woods and Seal Beach respectively.

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!
