This research examined the role women played on the boards of the 48 most important national American Jewish organizations which were identified in 1994 as “key players on the American Jewish scene.” The study presents the most comprehensive and systematic analysis to date about the status of American Jewish women in the Jewish voluntary sector. The study is also unusual in its multi-method approach and in its application of “network analysis” to the study of board members in American Jewish organizations. In addition to discussing key findings, this study also offers recommendations on how, among other things, to recruit more women to boards and to broaden the talent pool to include women from outside the Jewish organizational world.
