History Biographical
The National Council of Jewish Women was established in the United States in 1893, to help new Jewish immigrants. A Canadian branch began in Toronto in 1897. In Montreal the Baron de Hirsch Institute covered immigrant aid at that time, and the Montreal NCJW chapter was only founded in 1918. The International Council was formed in 1912. NCJW is dedicated to furthering human welfare in the Jewish and general community, locally, nationally, and internationally. They do and did so through scholarships, summer camps, libraries, aiding immigrants, volunteer work, pre-and post-war refugee aid, gerontology research, services to the elderly, support of the Golden Age Association, shipments of play and school materials to Israel and North Africa, lobbying for equal pay and other human rights bills, and opening a shelter for battered Jewish women. Their members across Canada and the world both fundraise and volunteer.The National office of NCJW Canada moved from Montreal to Toronto in the mid-1950s before settling in Winnipeg in the early 1990s where it remained until 2015.
Custodial History
