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.

Join us for the opportunity to meet with Khawla Rihani, the Director of Economic Empowerment for Women (EEW). EEW, founded in 2000, is a nonprofit organization in Israel dedicated to improving women’s lives through economic empowerment. Its mission is to supply low income women in Israel with the knowledge and tools to create and grow their own small businesses as a means for gaining self-sufficiency and alleviating the cycle of poverty in which they live. EEW is the first and only organization in Israel that is solely dedicated to supplying credit and business training to low-income women. EEW was awarded the 2008 Speaker of the Knesset prize. Director Khawla Rhihani will discuss the EEW’s focus, including the need for economic empowerment for Palestinian women in Israel, strategies for empowering women, and the potential benefits of helping women to start and sustain their own businesses. Lunch will be included; $10/couvert per person. To RSVP, please contact Eric Probola at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-992-5247 by Friday October 31st. This event is co-sponsored by: The Center for Women; the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh; the Jewish Women’s Foundation of Pittsburgh; Hadassah Greater Pittsburgh Chapter; and National Council of Jewish Women, Pittsburgh Section.
