NCJW’s campaigns and initiatives champion progressive policies, help improve the lives of women, children, and families through local and federal-level advocacy work, and provide educational resources and action opportunities that enable NCJW members and supporters to maximize their impact as agents of social change.


Underlying these efforts is a set of core beliefs that form NCJW’s Resolutions and compel the organization to take a courageous stance on a wide variety of domestic and international issues. Learn more about how NCJW is changing the world for the better through its programs, initiatives, and public policy issues.

NCJW has been a leading organization in supporting Israel for more than 60 years, helping to lay the groundwork for important social change efforts in Israel. We are now witnessing the evolution of Israeli society as more and more women demand their fair and equal rights amidst serious challenges to those rights. NCJW has long been committed to advancing women’s status in Israel by helping women to develop a stronger voice at all levels of society.

Today, strategic efforts like NCJW's Israel Granting Program, advocacy and coalition work continue in this spirit of education and empowerment — helping to advance the lives of women, children, and families and ensure Israel’s future.

Get involved locally by attending our Discussion Series where we stay informed with guest speakers on the current issues in Israel hosted by Joan Gorfain and our partners in the community.
