In addition to effecting change womens groups have another role they provide an opportunity for women to build relationships with each other. In a Jewish community such as Phoenix this role is especially valuable as Phoenixs growth brings many newcomers each year. On these pages are photographs of women participating in Valley womens groups through the years. And although things have changed in our society today in more ways than the fashions pictured here the need for female bond- ing is still the same. Several local synagogues still have Sisterhoods or Womens League or Eshet Chayil or Kol Isha or Jewish Womens Circle and the presence of womens groups such as Hadassah and NCJW continues to help strengthen communities here in Israel and around the world.
