Since the founding of the Daughters of Israel in Miami in 1918, NCJW Miami has been instrumental in advocating for the rights of women, children and families in our community, creating community service, advocacy and educational opportunities for progressive women of all ages and incubating the leaders of today and tomorrow. The Greater Miami Section has a variety of educational programs, volunteer and advocacy opportunities for those who want to give a little of their time or more. We are actively involved in the process of tikkun olam, repair of the world, both within and beyond the Jewish community. If you are a progressive woman we hope you’ll feel NCJW is for you.

We are mothers, sisters and daughters.
Our members are seasoned activists working beside those just putting
their toes in the water of community involvement.
We are women with strong ties to our community, local schools
and political and cultural institutions.
