Biographical/Historical Note
The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) was founded in 1893; the Rochester Division organized in 1895.

In 1945 the Council initiated an overseas student scholarship program to allow foreign students to receive graduate training in American Universities. Israeli, Brazilian, French, Moroccan and Dutch students participated in the program.

The NCJW has offered assistance to the poor and services to youth and aging through its Friendship Club(1951), the Rochester School Volunteer Program (RSVP, 1962), Teen-Age Recreation Program (TARP, 1958), Meals on Wheels (1959), and two sponsored scout troops (1950). The NCJW also takes an active interest in politics. During election years, their newsletter, the Bulletin, has presented the NCJW's position on various issues, including housing, urban renewal, nuclear weapons testing, the Vietnam War, and the 1972 Mid-East Peace Plan.

Scope and Content
The collection contains correspondence and minutes of Board meetings, as well as budgets, presidents' and committee reports, and copies of the Bulletin.
