In communities across the country and around the globe, NCJW’s work reflects the spirit of the organization itself — a powerful union of forward-thinking ideals and Jewish values: A FAITH IN THE FUTURE. A BELIEF IN ACTION.


NCJW has been at the forefront of social change for over 118 years. NCJW members are outspoken champions for progressive policies at the federal, state, and local levels. Over the years, NCJW’s collective voice has changed the world for the better — improving the lives of women, children, and families in the US and Israel. Our history of social action is based in a powerful grassroots network — in local communities and online. Members all over the country courageously speak out when others are silent, taking a progressive stance on such issues as child welfare, women’s rights, and reproductive freedom.
