Important Message from NCJW/Essex

NCJW/Essex Postpones All Events Until May 15

NCJW/Essex is continuing to closely monitor the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. 

In accordance with these guidelines, we have decided that the best thing we can do to help stop the spread of this disease is to close the office and postpone all of our events and in-person meetings through May 15.

Unfortunately, the Card Party on May 4 will not take place as scheduled, and we will share details about a new date as soon as we have more information.

Details concerning other events that were scheduled during this time period will be posted on the website, and we will send another email update in April as more information becomes available. In the meantime, please email if you have any questions or concerns.

We would like to again invite you to continue NCJW/Essex’s important work by using conference services like Free Conference Call (good for multiple callers), or video chat using SkypeZoom or other video services.

Please note, staff will be working remotely and will be available by email. For general questions, please email

Thank you again for all of your support and understanding as together we adjust to what is hopefully a temporary “new normal.” 

We are grateful now, as always, for the commitment, strength, and compassion of our NCJW/Essex community.

Lesley Greenstein, President
Caitlin Higgins Joy, Executive Director
