A Faith in the Future. A Belief in Action.

NCJW NY is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW NY strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms. NCJW NY serves New Yorkers from all walks of life, from all racial and religious backgrounds. For more than 120 years, NCJW NY has been fostering women’s leadership and addressing the city’s inequities through both direct social services and advocacy for systemic change.

Our annual Back 2 School Store is coming up on August 6th! This program provides children with everything they need to go back to school with pride, confidence, and enthusiasm. One day every summer, NCJW NY’s Council House is transformed into a very special department store, to provide each child with a brand new outfit (shirt, pants, parka, sneakers, underwear and socks) as well as a backpack filled with school supplies, entirely free of charge. Best of all, the children chose each item themselves, based on their own tastes and styles.

We invite you to watch a short video above about this initiative, and to please consider making a contribution.
