Welcome to WikiProject Jewish Women, a collaboration area for Wikipedians interested in improving coverage of Jewish Women.


What it means to be Jewish is a complex question; "being Jewish" is somewhere between a nationality, ethnicity, religion, and culture. With this complex question in mind, we seek to expand Wikipedia's coverage of:

  • Historical and contemporary Jewish women
  • Jewish women's organizations
  • Women's roles in and contributions to the Jewish faith
  • Women's contributions to significant Jewish historical events
  • Topics, media, and other issues that are related to Jewish women


  • Time period: There is no time period limit to this project. Everything from Biblical times to today falls within the scope of this project.
  • Identity: Any person or institution that identifies as Jewish is welcome. This includes individuals who identify as Jewish culturally but not theologically and converts.
  • Sexuality/gender identity: Queer women are in the scope of this project as are Jewish transgender women. For further guidance, see WikiProject: LGBT Studies.
  • Race: Jews are found in all corners of the world, and belong to many different racial and ethnic groups. Jews of all races are within the scope of this project.
