Hannah G Solomon Award

National Council of Jewish Women’s Hannah G. Solomon Award is presented to a woman who has helped to change and expand the role of other women in vital areas of community life, and whose leadership has motivated others to fight for change. It is the highest award bestowed by NCJW.

The award commemorates the spirit of Hannah G. Solomon, who established the National Council of Jewish Women in 1893. Ms. Solomon, an early social activist, led the organization in its landmark battles for laws restricting child labor, for child welfare programs, and for improved housing, education, and health care for the poor.
