Hannah G. Solomon Award

This award is named after our founder who in 1893 brought together ninety Jewish women from all over the United States to the Parliament of Religions at the Chicago World’s Fair. By doing this, she formed the first major Jewish Women’s organization, The National Council of Jewish Women, dedicated to faith, humanity and serving unmet human needs.

This prestigious award is based on the following criteria:

  • An individual who is known for her/his interest, activity and stand on vital issues with which NCJW is sympathetic, and has helped translate them into community programs
  • An individual who has made known and stimulated interest and action in unmet needs at the grass roots level and brought about important community services
  • Someone who is a catalyst for social change
