Michigan Women Who Made a Difference


The Michigan Women Who Made a Difference Project seeks to collect, preserve, and share the myriad stories and biographies of Michigan’s Jewish women who helped to build and shape our communities.

Through this website, the inspiring stories of these women will live on forever, free and open to all, for generations to come. JHSM is the only Jewish organization in Michigan dedicated to the collection and preservation of these priceless stories.

The collection grows every day. Already, we have gathered some 200 stories of Jewish women whose legacies have contributed to this great state. We invite you to help us grow, share and sustain this project. Explore the stories, share them with friends and family. Submit a biography. Make a donation.
