MissionJewish values inspire the National Council of Jewish Women of Australia - Victoria (NCJWA Vic) to empower women to achieve their potential and improve the quality of life for all women, girls and their families.
We achieve this through our work in the Jewish and broader communities by:
Empowering women at key points across the lifecycle
Advancing the status of women and girls
Promoting social cohesion and human rights
Supporting the empowerment of women and girls in Israel
What We DoNCJWA Vic is a vibrant, strong and independent women's organisation dedicated to furthering the status of women in both the Jewish and broader communities. We do this through a range of innovative activities.
Established in Victoria in 1927, by Dr Fanny Reading, the National Council of Jewish Women of Australia Victoria (NCJWA Vic) is a grassroots, membership organisation that serves the community.
What makes us unique and effective is that we bring together women across the generations and from across the community to advance our vision. We also partner with other organisations locally, nationally and globally, to give voice to our common causes.
How we make a positive and lasting impact
