WIZO was Israel’s first social start-up, says organization’s outgoing president

The Women’s International Zionist Organization is really the first social start-up in Israel, said Tova Ben-Dov, president of World WIZO.

Ben-Dov, who will step down this week after completing her four-year term as leader of the women’s organization, sat down with The Jerusalem Post to talk about the past, present and future of WIZO, which is celebrating 95 years.

Her history with the organization began in 1965 when, as a young mother living in Herzliya Pituah for only two weeks, she received a knock on the door by a representative of the local WIZO branch.
