History Biographical
Founded in Toronto in 1897, the National Council of Jewish Women of Canada (NCJWC) is a volunteer organization which has provided women with a Judaic milieu through which to express themselves as Canadians. As opposed to other Jewish organizations, NCJWC focuses on facilitating Jewish life in Canada rather than solely Israel. The group engages in philanthropic works which have assisted both the Jewish and general communities of Canada. The Ottawa section of the NCJWC was formed in March 1944 after a small local women’s group, the Ottawa Jewish Juniors, resolved to collapse its existing organization and became instead an official section of the Council. Prior to World War II, it became apparent to the national executive that a Council section was needed in the Nation’s capital city, not only to serve the needs of the growing Ottawa Jewish community, but also to act as part of an expanding Council project to encourage an interest in the legislative process and promote active participation in Canadian social legislation. By October 1944, NCJWC-Ottawa Section had become an affiliate of the Ottawa Local Council of Women and later that month was declared on the official list of Women’s organizations in Ottawa. Amelia Loeb and Rochelle Caplan were the first President and Vice President of the Ottawa Section. During the 1950s, the NCJWC took firm and often controversial stances on many issues by adopting resolutions on legislation which would foster improved living conditions and enhance the quality of life of many Canadians. They worked in conjunction with the Canadian Government and the United Nations. In 1953 the Golden Age club for Jewish Senior citizens was established. In addition, the very popular Exhibition and Sale of Paintings was established in 1958 with all proceeds going to NCJWC activities. By the 1960s, the Ottawa Section of the NCJWC had 500 members. With the organization’s current activities and programs flourishing, the Ottawa Section devoted more work among the aged. For example, in 1966 Kosher meals on wheels was established, proposed by Jacquelin Holzman, Ottawa Section President from 1959-1961. The 1970s saw increased women’s activism, the revival of immigrant aid programs and projects aimed in the area of human rights. In 1973, in conjunction with the Ottawa Jewish Community Council, the television program Shalom Ottawa was established which portrayed a comprehensive picture of Ottawa’s Jewish community. It is still produced today. By the 1980's the Ottawa Section had begun to struggle with a dwindling membership and a decline in volunteer support for many of its existing projects and activities. Although it was becoming increasingly difficult for the executive to maintaining certain activities, the section continued to play an active role in the Ottawa community and maintain its status as a respected voice on women’s issues and human rights concerns. However by 1995, the activities of the Ottawa Section of the National Council of Jewish Women of Canada were discontinued.
