Our Support For Israel
Israel Granting Program, Advocacy and Coalition Work and Commitment to Education
NCJW’s work in Israel directly mirrors our work to create progressive social change in the United States. Our pioneering programs in Israel foster and support education, promote empowerment of women, and bridge the gaps in society for Israel’s vulnerable women, children, and families. For more than 60 years, NCJW has the reputation as the foremost progressive US Jewish women’s organization dedicated to women’s empowerment and gender equality in Israel.
Israel Granting Program: NCJW awards grants to organizations and programs that address women’s rights, education, social justice, human trafficking and domestic violence. Through Yad B’Yad (Hand in Hand with Israel), NCJW provides grants for literacy childhood development and enrichment for disadvantaged children and families.
Advocacy and Coalition Work: NCJW is a member of numerous coalitions that aim to ensure the rights and well being of Israeli women, children and families. We are involved in social action and advocacy issues in the areas of poverty, hunger, tolerance, co-existence, the promotion of equal citizenship for all Israelis and women’s empowerment.
Commitment to Education: Our two most notable programs are the NCJW Women and Gender Studies Program at Tel Aviv University and the NCJW Research Institute for Innovation in Education (RIFIE) at Hebrew University.
