Please join us for our Annual Fall Luncheon November 1st, 2018. This is a time when our community of members, volunteers, friends, donors, and supporters gather for an afternoon to celebrate the work we have done together.

This year, we will be honoring Susan Weidman Schneider with the Rebekah Kohut Award. Susan is a founding mother of Lilith, the award-winning Jewish women’s magazine. The magazine, and her writing and lectures, are often credited with changing the way Jewish women see themselves and their roles in the Jewish community. She is the author of several acclaimed books including Jewish and Female, a guide to integrating Jewish traditions and beliefs into a modern lifestyle confronts problems concerning marriage, divorce, children and male-dominated rituals.

The Rebekah Kohut Award is given to a non-member who has played an especially significant role in the communal life of our city, and who has distinguished herself in her field. Rebekah Kohut was the Founding President of NCJW NY and who made an indelible impact on our community—serving those in need, protecting the vulnerable, and elevating the position of women in public life.

Help us take NCJW NY into the future by bringing the next generation of NCJW NY supporters and members: your friends, children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews…All are welcomed to attend.
