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.
