The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a volunteer organization that has been at the forefront of social change for more than a century — championing the needs of women, children and families while courageously taking a progressive stance on such issues as child welfare, women’s rights and reproductive freedom.

That pioneering spirit continues to this day. Informed by Jewish values — and our understanding that these values have universal appeal — members of the National Council of Jewish Women are the voice of those who are overlooked, disadvantaged and exploited. Together, we have created a place where women from every walk of life can come together to make the world a better place – at home and across the globe.

NCJW embraces women of diverse backgrounds and temperaments, thinkers and doers, who want to bring change at the local, national and global level.
