Donate now: honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s legacy

We mourn with the family of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and we mourn with America. While Jewish law commands that we mourn, Jewish law also commands that we continue to fight for a better world. 


Through your gift you are:

  • ensuring children have a new outfit and supplies so they are prepared, like their peers, for school.
  • supporting the well-being of women in life transitions and helping them to achieve financial stability.
  • giving refugees the opportunity to furnish their new life in Pittsburgh.
  • enabling children to safely play while their family deals with court matters.
  • advocating on issues such as domestic violence prevention, reproductive health and rights, civil rights, and economic justice.

All of these things happen because you support NCJW Pittsburgh Section.

Planned Gifts – Life & Legacy

Generations of women have volunteered their time and financial resources to ensure the health and financial viability of the Pittsburgh Section. We read in the Talmud, “As my father planted for me, so I plant for my children.” It is our turn to plant for our children and future generations. As we sow, so shall we reap. You can create a legacy and enable NCJW Pittsburgh Section to carry out its mission more effectively, by making a charitable bequest. The Life & Legacy program provides permanent, additional funding required to enhance NCJW’s existing programs, launch new initiatives, and be responsive to newly identified community needs. Please contact Amy Herlich, Director of Development, at or 412-421-6118 x206 for more information.
