Leadership message from the Co-Aviv Representatives to the World WIZO Executive

Dearest Chaverot,

We are honored to be the Co- World WIZO Aviv representatives, and are so excited to be leaders in the incredible family of WIZO sisters from around the world.  As proud and passionate Jewish Zionistas, we hope to educate and connect like-minded young women to inspire them to become leaders in their own communities as well with Am Yisrael.

We were both raised with WIZO as part of our extended families so it was natural for us to continue the work that countless incredible women have done before us. It is crucial for younger women to take the lead and continue carrying the WIZO torch to ensure the future of Eretz Yisrael, Klal Yisrael and Am Yisrael.

Le’Tiferet Medinat Yisrael!
