About ICJW - International Council of Jewish Women

Established 1912 in Berlin, the International Council of Jewish Women (ICJW) is an umbrella organization representing 43 independent sister organizations in various countries, working together to protect human rights and traditional Jewish values. The common goal is to improve the status and lives of women in society, contributing to interfaith tolerance, tolerance among cultures and promoting mutual understanding and dialogue.

While not being a political organization, ICJW can issue statements and organize initiatives that contribute to the humanization of politics. As a non-governmental organization, it has an advisory vote with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) as well as with other international organizations. ICJW seeks a just society that opposes anti-Semitism and hatred and respects traditional Jewish values.
