The National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis (NCJWSTL) 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 safe-guarding individual rights and freedoms. For 125 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 inde-pendently 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 organi-zations working to achieve mutual goals.

Powered by the Jewish imperative to ensure dignity for all, NCJWSTL confronts today’s most urgent social and economic challenges facing women, children and families by impacting policy, advocating for justice and supporting the community. Your voice has never been more essential, and our voices together make a meaningful difference in the world. 

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 ser-vice projects like Back To School! Store & Kids Community Closet, the Jean Stein Bloch Wife Widow Woman support group, 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.
