WIZO celebrates 95 years of social activism

As the Women’s International Zionist Organization celebrates its 95th anniversary, Prof. Rivka Lazovsky, chairwoman of the World WIZO Executive, sat down with The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday to talk about the largest social organization in Israel.

Lazovsky is not the first woman in her family to be involved in WIZO. Her grandmother was a member in Vienna and escaped the Nazis with her family to Uruguay in 1939, where her mother became involved in the organization.

After immigrating to Israel in 1977, Lazovsky immediately signed up to become of member of WIZO.
