|About NCJWA||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. At a Section level, we promote social justice through education, programs of empowerment and community service. We are concerned to address the oppression of women; to promote women within Judaism and the Jewish community; to empower all women, including Jewish women within the wider Australian community; and to promote the position of women in Israel. We are guided by, and seek to ensure the continuity of, Jewish values – in particular the primacy and inviolability of human life, the obligation of justice (Tzedakah) and the commitment to repair the work (Tikkun Olam).|
