Biographical / Historical

Savannah’s Jewish Educational Alliance (JEA) was founded in 1912 to serve the needs of the growing Jewish population in Georgia’s first city. In 1922, female members of the Alliance created a group to become its Women’s auxiliary. According to its constitution, the Women’s Club’s “aims and purposes shall be to raise funds to help maintain and beautify the Jewish Educational Alliance, to assist and participate in all activities of the Jewish Educational Alliance… to improve the Civic, Moral, Religious, Cultural, Social, and Physical welfare of the community at large, and to further all American and Jewish interest in general.” The Women’s Club was an integral part of the JEA for more than 30 years. It is currently unknown when the Women’s Club was officially dissolved, but as of 2017, the only club in continual operation at the JEA is its Garden Club.
