The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.
It is NCJW’s core belief that we can make a difference through community service and advocacy. Our distinctive character is based in the pillars that have guided its work since 1893. From the beginning, NCJW has been at the forefront of social change, taking a progressive stance on issues to protect the needs of women, children, and families.
The NCJW-Greater Minneapolis Section engages volunteers from its membership and from the community at large, and offers leadership development opportunities. We have a long and successful history of making a difference in the Minneapolis metropolitan area through programs that have helped children and families in our schools, our neighborhoods and our community.
