|International Council Of Jewish Women|
The International Council Of Jewish Women (ICJW) represents Jewish women from all walks of life in many important international forums and is strategically positioned to confront and respond to the concerns of the Jewish community and women in general.
Globally every Jewish woman has the opportunity to align herself with ICJW which comprises a huge network of like-minded women working together for the betterment of all women.
Believing that women’s rights are human rights, ICJW lobbies for an end to discrimination against women in all spheres of life. In its battle against intolerance, ICJW campaigns alongside people of goodwill to combat racism, anti-Semitism and all forms of religious discrimination. ICJW at all times stands in support of Israel.
International Council of Jewish Women has consultative status as a non-government organisation (NGO) with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and maintains permanent delegations at the UN in New York, Geneva, Vienna and at UNESCO in Paris.
ICJW is also strongly represented at the World Jewish Congress, the Council of Europe, European Women’s Lobby, Religions for Peace and the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture.
