About Us

The National Council of Jewish Women is a progressive Jewish organization that has been at the forefront of social change for over 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 — the National Council of Jewish Women is nothing less than the voice of, the place where women from across society come together to make the world at large and their communities, in particular, a better place.

NCJW embraces women of diverse backgrounds and temperaments, thinkers and doers, who want to play a part at the local, national, and even global level.
