Message from the President

”To share the caring for welfare of children and women in need in Israel and in Jewish life around the world.”

Board members 

Karen Melchior, Monica Salimanov, Karen Henriksen and Ora Oshri.

History

An Association of Jewish Women was already established in Denmark in 1913 but transformed into a Danish WIZO Federation the 3rd of September 1946 right after the war. The founding group immediately adapted two WIZO institutions. One of them -  “Lotus” in Carmiel - continues to be sponsored by WIZO Denmark.

Mission

Our main mission is to fundraise for the benefit of WIZO in Israel and thus assist in Israel’s efforts to create a welfare state, especially for women, children from economically challenged families and immigrants - regardless of religious or cultural backgrounds.

Our second mission is that we, while we work together to fundraise, help integrate Jewish women in the Danish Jewish Community.
