Women's Division


For over 30 years, the Women's Division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara has offered women of all ages a unique opportunity to enhance and support Jewish life in our local community, in Israel and around the world. We are committed to the ideals and values of our Jewish heritage and tradition, to tzedakah (righteousness/charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Women’s Philanthropy offers an array of educational, social, and fundraising events.


From new mothers to grandmothers, from lawyers to bankers to advertising execs, there is a place for you to get involved and make a difference. We invite you to join an exceptional group of women who strive to inspire, educate, and connect people to their Jewish identity, ensuring a Jewish future for today and for the generations to come.​
