Agents of Change

Washington Jewish Women's Stories - with the Jewish Women's Archive in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Women's Vote


In collaboration with the Jewish Women's Archive, the Washington State Jewish Historical Society is proud to announce Agents of Change: Washington Jewish Women's Stories, featuring women telling their SHORT stories in their own words (and must include a photo). 

New stories and submissions are being curated and will be added as they are finished. You can submit your story using the link below.

The short stories that will be shared are of women who have made their mark in a wide array of fields. Agents of Change illustrates the many important contributions Jewish women are making every day in Washington state and in our world.

To contribute your story as a Jewish Woman in Washington state, click the form link below to submit your information. You can also submit an audio recording using the voice memo recording feature on your mobile device.

Please note that your "story" should be no more than about 2 paragraphs or under 3 minutes in the recording. We are not looking for your life story, but instead a statement about what is meaningful to you, what you have accomplished, what you feel is significant to you or your family or the community. Again, NOT your life story here. 

We also MUST have a visual submission with this - a photo of you or something related to your submission. If you have problems with any of this, please contact Sara Mottaz at
