National Council of Jewish Women, Cleveland Section received the Irene Zehman Volunteer Award at the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland’s Women’s Division annual spring luncheon, Monday, May 3. For over 115 years, NCJW has been a powerful force for social change locally, nationally and internationally. The Volunteer Award was established in 1980 in memory of Irene Zehman by her daughters, Judith Z. Sherman and Roslyn Z. Wolf, both of blessed memory. The award recognizes a woman, a group of women, or a women’s organization whose efforts demonstrate the highest ideals and practices of volunteer service.

Representing the oldest Jewish women’s organization in North America, NCJW members step forward when others retreat, speak out when others are silent and champion the needs of women, children and families. From school literacy programs to senior life-enrichment, from voter registration to the NCJW/Montefiore Hospice Project, NCJW volunteers can be found at the leading edge of progressive social issues.

The Women’s Division of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland connects and involves women from throughout the community in the work of the Federation, prepares and promotes women into positions of leadership within the Federation and the community, and plays a leading role in supporting the annual Campaign for Jewish Needs and empowering women as philanthropists.
