There is a place that shares your values–a community of 90,000 women and men who believe the world can and should be a better place.
It is the National Council of Jewish Women.
The National Council of Jewish Women is a volunteer organization that has been at the forefront of social change for over a century. Inspired by the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (“healing the world”), NCJW courageously takes a progressive stance on issues such as child welfare, women’s rights, and reproductive freedom. And we encourage everyone—women and men of all faiths—to join us.

NCJW is committed to ensuring that all children have equal access to education, and the Back 2 School Store (B2SS) is a mechanism for helping underprivileged children begin the school year on an equal footing with their peers. While the children select their items with a volunteer personal shopper in the B2SS, parents visit our Resource Room to connect with local organizations and agencies for assistance with health care, parenting, financial literacy, career development, and other social services. Our goal is to prepare students for success by fostering positive self-esteem and sparking enthusiasm for the upcoming school year. In 2017, we plan to serve 600 children!
