NCJW Austin hosts its next luncheon on Tuesday, September 1st at Siena Ristorante Toscana, 6203 N. Capital of Texas Highway, from 11:30am to 1:00pm (networking time, 11:30-11:50am; program starts at 11:50am).
Our guest speaker will be Janet Neuenschwander, NCJW National Board Member, who will be speaking about our NCJW Israel Granting Program and advocacy efforts in Israel.
Janet Neuenschwander co-chairs NCJW’s Israel Programs and is a member of NCJW’s National Board of Directors. She has served as co-coordinator of NJCW’s Texas State Policy Advocacy Network and served as NCJW Commissioner Co-Chair, as well as Texas State Policy Advocate Co-Chair. Janet has served as San Antonio (TX) Section President for three years and has been a long time leader of San Antonio NCJW. She has been a trainer at every National NCJW meeting since 2003, and we are so fortunate to have her speak to us at our September luncheon.
NCJW has been a leading organization in supporting Israel for more than 60 years, helping to lay the groundwork for important social change efforts in Israel. We are now witnessing the evolution of Israeli society as more and more women demand their fair and equal rights amidst serious challenges to those rights. NCJW has long been committed to advancing women’s status in Israel by helping women to develop a stronger voice at all levels of society.
Today, strategic efforts like the Israel Granting Program and NCJW’s advocacy and coalition work continue in this spirit of education and empowerment — helping to advance the lives of women, children, and families and ensure Israel’s future.
