Beth Abraham Sisterhood is pleased to announce our 2020 Women of Valor honorees! They are:

Tara Feiner

Due to the Coronavirus crisis, we were unable to observe our annual luncheon in honor of these women. We hope to be able to reschedule it soon.

Women of Valor is an annual program honoring Jewish women in the Dayton community who have made unique and valuable contributions to the Jewish and/or general communities.  Organized by Beth Abraham Synagogue’s Sisterhood, this is the 10th year of this program.

Each year, the Women of Valor program has a social action component. Some examples of past social action projects that have supported the community include: 

  • Collecting women’s accessories for Clothes That Work
  • Collecting personal care items for the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court’s Women’s Therapeutic Store
  • Donating coloring books and crayons to Dayton Children’s Hospital and Montgomery County Juvenile Court
  • Donating board games and magazines to Oak Tree Corner
  • Collecting snack items, writing journals and stuffed animals for CARE House, an advocacy center for victims of abuse
  • Collecting new adult socks for Life Essentials

We are proud to honor Jewish women in Dayton who have made significant and meaningful contributions to our community.
