Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Seattle Section of the Council of Jewish Women was founded in 1900 with 34 founding members, seven years after the national organization was founded in Chicago. Early work included assisting new immigrants, providing programming to deter juvenile delinquency and fighting legislation that would have eroded the separation of church and state. In 1956, the Council Thrift Shop opened in Pike Place market. Over the past century, the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), Seattle Section has founded a settlement house, later to become Neighborhood House, an agency that today provides support and educational services for low income Seattle residents, and Council House, a low-income apartment building for Seattle’s elderly.
