For more than one hundred years, Jewish women and men of the Dallas area have responded to Tikkun Olam, the religious challenge to heal the world. Repairing Our World: The First 100 Years of the National Council of Jewish Women, Greater Dallas Section is a history of this passion to create a more humane society. Organized by decades from the group’s beginnings in 1913, the book identifies both leadership and accomplishments of the NCJW. Its content is richly enhanced with personal essays from the organization’s members, historical highlights, and graphics.
Through education, community service, advocacy, and collaboration, members work to address the needs of all peoples and faiths within the community. Advocacy efforts aim to correct the root causes of current social problems. More than one thousand members devote countless volunteer hours to advance NCJW’s mission. Leaders dare to have a vision of what is possible.
