BREAKING NEWS: NCJW Highlighted in Slingshot 2014-15 Women and Girls Supplement Read more ›
We are delighted to share that NCJW has been recognized by the Slingshot Guide 2014-15 Supplement as a leading Jewish organization impacting the lives of women and girls. NCJW was selected from among hundreds of finalists reviewed by 112 professionals with expertise in grant-making and Jewish communal life. The Guide declared that “NCJW’s advocacy work sets it apart from other Jewish women’s organizations by empowering its members to become advocates and change makers within their own communities."
"It is also fitting that we celebrate 20 years of VAWA as Jews around the world prepare to celebrate the “High Holidays” -- Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur -- a time of reflection, atonement for one’s sins, and rededication to our fellow human beings. The current headlines reflect what we know occurs in communities each and every day, though with less well known figures. As we reflect during these “High Holidays,” let us not only celebrate the successes of the Violence Against Women Act, but rededicate ourselves to continuing the fight to shore up legal tools and protections to keep individuals safe from those who are supposed to love them."
