The National Council of Jewish Women is a Jewish volunteer organization that supports progressive issues and social justice, focusing primarily on issues related to women, children and families. The 118-year-old organization was founded in the spirit of women’s empowerment and the advancement of Jewish ideals of social justice. In recent years, NCJW has launched campaigns to support women’s reproductive rights and access to contraception, promote and protect the right to vote, and combat domestic violence.

She also worked as a deputy director of the Governor’s Office of Social Policy in Massachusetts, deputy commissioner of the Welfare Department for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.
