National Council of Jewish Women of Australia
Jewish Women for a Just World
NCJWA is a Jewish feminist organisation committed to promoting social justice and the rights of women in all aspects of their lives. At a National level we do this through advocacy, education and community building.
About National Council of Jewish Women of Australia
With a focus on women’s advocacy in Australia, NCJWA is unique in Australia today, in that no other Jewish women’s organisation in this nation has a comparable mission. Working for Australian Jewish Women as Australians, as Women and as Jews, NCJWA understands that our identities are diverse and complex, engaging in programs and conversations that stretch the expanse of the community. Our Jewish identities include Judaism as religion and culture and see the position of women around the world (including Israel) as tied to our own. As an affiliate of the International Council of Jewish Women we connect with women of fifty countries around the world, and through this we have a voice in the highest levels of world government and at human rights agencies worldwide.
NCJWA is a place for diverse views and consensual action, a place for discussion and debate, a place for exploration and commitment. Our many Sections across the country are involved in a range of programs. Sections are active in Brisbane, Canberra, Gold Coast, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia. Sections are the Members of the National organisation.
Our projects bring change to our communities, our country and our world. In short, our aim is to make the world a better place.
