Connecting for Impact: Strengthening the Feminist Ecosystem of Israel

Take Action

In Israel, NCJW does its work through a gender lens, empowering Israeli and American women to advocate for a robust civil society. With our grants to Israeli organizations, participation in advocacy coalitions, policy statements, and our pioneering work in education and research, NCJW is a leader of women’s and gender rights in Israel.  For more than 70 years, we have been supporting women, children, and families throughout Israeli society regardless of ethnicity, religion, and economic status.

We support this work through our Connecting for Impact Fellowship, a prestigious leadership development program for top CEOs and Executives looking to grow the feminist field in Israel and leverage their collective impact. Established in 2018 by the National Council for Jewish Women and the NCJW Women and Gender Studies Program at Tel Aviv University, this program directly responds to research findings that indicated the importance and vitality of creating platforms for feminist connection and collaboration.
