Every month there is something happening in our section – a meeting, program, or community service opportunity, so please join us!
We advocate for individual rights and freedoms and take a progressive stand on issues of importance to women, children and families.
We are an organization that upholds the ideal that ordinary people can make a real and lasting difference in other people’s lives simply by taking action and volunteering.
There is a place that shares your ideas. A place where women believe in their heads and in their hearts that things can and should be better. It is the National Council of Jewish Women. And now, it's more important than ever that compassionate women find a place to come together and take a stand.
OUR SOUTH SHORE SECTION BEGINNINGS
It is remarkable to realize that today’s women of South Shore Section continue the work that was begun in 1922. We are very proud of the vital impact that the South Shore Section has had on our local community for the past 95 years. Our history is rich with community involvement, from helping immigrants arriving at ports in Freeport and New York City, to assisting the Hispanic Brotherhood of Rockville Centre; from providing aid to undernourished Jewish children in Europe to contributing to Island Harvest; from supporting legislation to establish a minimum wage to advocating for a woman’s right to choose, our Section’s work remains constant and our members’ dedication steadfast.
National Council of Jewish Women New York Section 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.
