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.

A new program is coming to NCJW Pittsburgh Section in the summer of 2015. The Back 2 School Store (B2SS) will enable economically disadvantaged children to “shop” for brand new clothing, sneakers, and school supplies in a one-day-only “store” set up just for them. With the assistance of NCJW volunteer personal shoppers, each child will be escorted through the department store-like space to select pants, shirts, sneakers, undergarments, a winter jacket, and a backpack in their favorite colors and styles. Each child also receives school supplies. All of the merchandise is brand new, purchased or donated by NCJW and its sponsoring partners. While the children “shop” inside the “store,” parents browse the Family Resource Center, where they can pick up health and social service information from other local organizations. Teddi Jacobson, Myrna Kline, Lynne Siegel, and Katie Whitlatch are the chairs of this amazing new program. If you’d like to get involved in this initiative, contact Samantha Dye at email@example.com or 412-421-6118.
