NCJW Colorado Section

The Colorado Section, founded in October 1893, has been at the forefront of social change, defending the needs of women, children, families and senior citizens, courageously taking a progressive stance on such issues as child welfare, women's rights and reproductive freedom. That pioneering spirit continues to this day.

We are guided by Jewish values and motivated to protect society's most vulnerable and improve the world. We are thinkers and doers--and a powerful force for change.

Your generous volunteerism and donations continue to support programs such as Children's Traveling Theater, Scholarship, Candidate's Forum, Shalom Park, Domestic Violence, Tutoring, State Public Affairs and more. Download our Current Programs Listing.
