Ruth Messinger, American Jewish World Service (AJWS)
Ruth W. Messinger is president of American Jewish World Service (AJWS), an organization that works to alleviate poverty, hunger and disease in the developing world through grassroots social-change grantmaking, public policy advocacy, volunteer service and education about global justice within the Jewish community. Ms. Messinger assumed this role in 1998 following a 20-year career in public service in New York City.
Considered a national leader in the movement to end the genocide in Sudan, Ms. Messinger has been called upon several times to advise President Obama about creating a sustainable path toward peace in that country. She has also served on the Obama administration's Task Force on Global Poverty and Development. Ms. Messinger has received honorary degrees and awards from four major American rabbinical schools and awards from the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the Women's Funding Network and the American Jewish Committee. In recognition of her leadership she has been named among the Forward's "50 Most Influential Jews of the Year" for nine years and, in 2011 was on the Jerusalem Post's "World's Most Influential Jews" list. Ms. Messinger is an active member of her congregation, the Society for the Advancement of Judaism, and has three children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
