Jewish Women's Archive: This Week in History

Readers may be somewhat familiar with the Jewish Women's Archive (JWA) from sections of the site that were previously featured (for example, the Encyclopedia section was featured in the 03-08-2019 Scout Report). As "the world's largest collection of information on Jewish women," the JWA provides a wealth of information on Jewish history and identity. The archive's This Week in History section highlights prominent Jewish women's success and contributions, such as the birth and work of influential photographer Annie Leibovitz and the day Caroline Klein Simon was sworn in as Secretary of State for New York (the second woman to hold this position). The page defaults to historical events that occurred during the present week, and history teachers may find that this is a fun way to start each week in their classroom (by noting important moments that occurred on that day in the past). Additionally, the box on the left side of the page allows users to select a date, or a range of dates, to locate important historical events. Clicking on the "Read More" button by each entry pulls up a synopsis or biography with sources. Readers can also subscribe and get updates sent directly to their inbox.
