National Council of Jewish Women of Australia (NCJWA)

Ensuring the continuity of Jewish values to build a better world, through:

– advocacy,

– empowerment,

– community service,

– philanthropy, and

– education.

NCJWA advocates, educates and empowers women. We are concerned with social justice and women’s issues and focus on building better lives for all.


Each of the 6 sections in Australia provides a variety of programs and projects based on our 4 tiered platform: Status of Women, Community Service, Israel, Education.

  • We provide service to the community through grassroots programs and projects touching members of the Jewish and general communities from the very young to seniors.

  • We empower and advocate for women via our work with other NGOs and advisory committees to the Government.

  • We support Israel through advocacy, education and fundraising for various Israel projects.

  • We educate especially on women’s rights including Jewish women’s rights.

The National Council of Jewish Women of Australia (NCJWA) elects a new Board along with a new National President, Melinda Jones at its AGM on Wednesday 15th July.

The new Board is the culmination of a concerted effort to modernise the organisation and to achieve a much-needed “passing of the baton” to a younger generation.
