Jewish World Watch

 Jewish World Watch logo jpgJewish World Watch is a local non-profit with a global impact. By partnering with on the ground non-governmental organizations in Africa, JWW support transformative programs for survivors of genocide.

Temple Etz Chaim is a proud co-sponsor of the annual Conejo Valley Walk to End Genocide.  Each year we welcome 350-400 activist-walkers and have raised over $40,000 to support surivors of genocide in Africa.

From the very founding of the Jewish World Watch, TEC has taken a very active role participating in walks and rallies, and fund raising events. Our rabbi, Rabbi Spiegel, is a member of the Board of Directors. We believe that we must do all we can to end genocide wherever and whenever it occurs. 

JWW has seen firsthand the incredible things that youth can do. Please join us for 2 new opportunities to be a Changemaker. If you are not a college or high school student, please share this with someone who is!
