Important Update about Coronavirus from NCJW/Essex

Office Closed Monday, March 16, to Friday, March 27

The health and well-being of NCJW/Essex members is always our biggest priority. To ensure we are doing our part to contain the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19), especially as we consider the risks to those of us in our community who may be more susceptible to this disease, we have made the difficult decision to close the NCJW/Essex offices.

The office will be closed for two weeks, effective Monday, March 16, through Friday, March 27. During that time, we will be closely monitoring the situation to determine if extending this timeline is necessary. 

While the physical NCJW/Essex office is closed, the important work of NCJW/Essex will continue. You can participate in NCJW/Essex business by using conference services like Free Conference Call (good for multiple callers), or video chat using SkypeZoom or other video services. 

Staff will be working remotely and will be available by email. For general questions, please email

We appreciate all of your support and understanding as we face this challenge together, even while apart. 

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

Lesley Greenstein, President
