Your support will change lives. Does that sound like an exaggeration? We don’t think so, and you probably don’t either. Because of your support, the lives of women, children and families in need will be changed.  A child will learn the importance of books.  A survivor of domestic violence will leave a shelter with a suitcase packed with necessities to start her new home.  An at-risk family will have something nutritious to eat. A survivor of trafficking is given new opportunities as they transition to a life beyond slavery.  A woman in Israel will be empowered knowing that NCJW is fighting for gender equality in Israel.

For over 120 years, the National Council of Jewish Women has been an active force that incorporates Jewish values into action, striving for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms. Your recent gift will help us carry on our work for social change.

Your generosity ensures that NCJW will be able to protect individual liberties, human rights and dignity now and for generations to come. Thank you again for your support.
