TEANECK, N.J. — National Council of Jewish Women Bergen County Section was honored at the Project S.A.R.A.H. 10th Annual Breakfast.
Project S.A.R.A.H. (Stop Abusive Relationships at Home) is a program that works to overcome cultural, legal and religious barriers confronting victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
Presidium member Marcia Levy accepted accepting the volunteer recognition award on behalf of NCJW Bergen County at the April 3 award ceremony at Keter Torah in Teaneck.
“We know that the home is a sacred place that needs to be protected with mutual respect and love by everyone who is a part of our community,” Levy said. “We applaud Project S.A.R.A.H as it has expanded to educate children and parents to be aware of and meet the challenges of our changing society.”
Since its founding in 1923, NCJW has stressed the importance that Jewish women place on recognizing the needs of their sisters.
Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.
