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.

Through the wisdom of community organizing, this workshop will explore campaign development and how to build power and have the greatest possible impact. This is a great opportunity for those both new and more experienced in social justice work to come together to learn and envision the next phase of our community’s social justice work. This workshop is hosted by JOIN for Justice as part of a national training series. NCJW and NCJW Pittsburgh are co-sponsors of this event.
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!
