WHO WE ARE

NCJWC, Toronto, established in 1897, has been a catalyst for women and the most vulnerable.

In 1922, our first Council House was opened at 44 St. George Street. In 1964 we moved to 4700 Bathurst Street where we spent 56 years affecting positive change within our community. In February 2020, we moved to our new home at 890 Sheppard Avenue West where we look forward to continuing our dedication to serving the individual and community.

In 1984, NCJWC, Toronto Foundation was created and the Bathurst-Prince Charles Apartment Building was opened. The Bathurst-Prince Charles is an integrated fully-accessible housing project with affordable housing for seniors combined with independent accommodation for the disabled.

NCJWC, Toronto is a proud supporter of NCJWC’s National project in Israel, ALUMA. ALUMA (formerly known as Israel Family Counseling Association), which provides needed services such as pre-marital, marital and family counseling, divorce mediation, preparation of mentally handicapped people for marriage and independent life in Israel.

AFFILIATIONS

The International Council of Jewish Women (ICJW) was founded in Rome, Italy in 1912 but because of interruptions of two world wars, it functioned only intermittently until after the Second World War. It was revived at a meeting held in Paris, France in 1949. Canada was represented at this historic meeting. Since then, two Canadians have held the position of President of the ICJW. Today, ICJW represents 43 affiliate Jewish women’s organizations in five continents.
