Open/Close Menu Women's International Zionist Organisation

Female representatives from 30 federations around the world, including smaller Jewish communities such as India, attended the five-day plenary conference – from January 19-23 – which was held at the Hilton Hotel in Tel Aviv.

“The show of female power at WIZO sends a clear message about the place of women on the front lines of activities and as leaders of the Jewish Zionist ethos. WIZO, backed by the strongest Jewish communities in the world, will continue to work to advance the status of women in Israel and strengthen children and youth at risk,” said Prof. Rivka Lazovsky, chairwoman of the World WIZO executive.

As part of the conference, the delegates visited the Knesset, where they met with Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and Member of Knesset Aliza Lavie, chairwoman of the Committee on the Status of Women.
