JOWMA: Medical Mission

DONATE

On October 7, Hamas launched a horrific terror attack in Israel. Over 1,300 Israelis have been killed, over 3,200 have been injured, and nearly 200 hostages have been taken.

As always, JOWMA’s network of physicians is here to serve the Jewish world.
Now, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Help support JOWMA’s work and our medical mission. We are bringing critically-needed physicians to save lives in Israel. Every dollar raised goes directly to support this

Our Mission

The Jewish Orthodox Women's Medical Association (JOWMA) is a trusted organization in the Jewish community devoted to promoting public and preventative health. JOWMA’s entrée and knowledge of the Jewish community in general, and the Orthodox Jewish community in particular, allows JOWMA to tailor culturally sensitive educational materials and programs to promote health and wellness and to combat misinformation.

JOWMA serves as a unique resource and liaison between the community and healthcare stakeholders from government, medicine, and the public health establishment throughout the United States. JOWMA is supported by a network of >500 Jewish women physician volunteers including specialists in nearly every field of medicine
