The Women’s Cultural Alliance (WCA) is an affinity group of the Jewish Federation of Greater Naples. The WCA provides the opportunity to meet others who share similar interests in a wide variety of social programs.
Membership in the WCA also makes each woman an official member of the Federation. We always welcome new members and hope you will join us...soon!

. . . I would not have had the opportunity to continue to further my intellectual curiosity and have had as much fun doing so! I never could have met so many fabulous women. ~ Barbara Karp
. . . I would never have met women who were so interesting, stimulating, diverse, and filled with a desire to do and to learn. WCA has enriched my life with art, music, crafts, reading, lectures, and food and fun. True Paradise . . . ~ Gail Nizin
. . . I would ask myself, "What will I do today?" rather than "Which book club, lecture, art tour, craft activity, luncheon or day trip should I choose to do today?" ~ Linda Simon
. . . our Jewish community would not be as vital and vibrant as it is. Because of WCA, our community engages more than 1,000 women in cultural, educational, social and philanthropic activities from which they benefit AND so does our entire Jewish community!
~ Jeffrey D. Feld, President/CEO, Jewish Federation of Greater Naples
. . . I would have to fly back North for every holiday. But now I have a second family here. ~ Marilyn Litz
. . . I wouldn't feel so alive and involved. ~ Nancy Kahn
. . . I wouldn’t have met so many interesting, delightful and caring women; plus I wouldn’t so quickly have found all the wonderful artists and art venues around Naples. ~ Dee Bittman
. . . I would not feel connected to so many women. We share a common bond, common interests, common experiences – the perfect ingredients to make friendships grow. ~ Maureen Schaab
. . . my life would not be so full and rewarding! ~ Lea Bendes
. . . I would not have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful individuals and to participate in the wide variety of enjoyable and enriching activities. WCA is a blessing. ~ Judy Fant
. . . I wouldn't have been on a catamaran, off Captiva, gazing at the night sky with an astronomer telling us about the stars, planets and vast universe. . . ~ Barbara Suden
. . . my life would not be as exciting and my perception of Southwest Florida would be very different. My participation in a wide variety of activities has given me the opportunity to make wonderful friends who encourage me to try different programs. ~ Elaine Soffer
. . . I would not have met the tremendous cache of fantastic women who make up WCA. My life is richer for the experience. “My Big Fat Greek Family” has surely grown. We have shared a lot – even a swamp walk! ~ Andrea
. . . and WCA’s very generous support, JFCS of Southwest Florida would not be able to support so many individuals and families with emotional, social and financial needs in our community.
~ Dr. Jaclynn Faffer, President/CEO, JFCS of Southwest Florida
. . . I would have a hole in my intellectual and cultural stimuli and inspirations. ~ Dina Shein
. . . Naples would not feel like home. ~ Phyllis Strome
