The National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis (NCJW STL) is inspired by Jewish values to advance social and economic justice for all women, children and families. The Jewish value of tikkun olam inspires NCJW to work through programs of education, advocacy, community service and philanthropy to improve the lives of everyone. We strive for social justice by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms. For more than 120 years, NCJW has identified unmet needs in the St. Louis community and developed innovative, hands-on projects that have positively affected thousands of lives.

Many of these projects today are independently run nonprofit organizations in the areas of child protection, education, domestic violence and elder care. NCJW is recognized as a leader in the St. Louis community and has established numerous partnerships with organizations working to achieve mutual goals.

NCJW is the place for progressive Jewish women—and for those inspired by Jewish values—to come together with courage, determination and commitment to foster positive social change for generations to come. Nationally, NCJW’s network of more than 90,000 members and supporters puts these ideals into action to make the world a better place.

The Resale Shop, a charitable project of NCJW, helps fund community service and advocacy projects. Donations of clothing for the entire family, household items, collectibles, jewelry, shoes and housewares are accepted during regular business hours. Proceeds from the Resale Shop support local community service projects like Back To School! Store & Kids Community Closet, the Jean Stein Bloch Wife Widow Woman support group, the Silent Witness Exhibit for domestic violence awareness, the Healing Hearts Bank, a microlending program for victims of domestic violence, Project Renewal, and advocacy efforts directed at local, state and national issues.

Susan Katzman is President.
