The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a left-of-center Jewish advocacy organization.
Federal Judicial Confirmations
On January 30, 2019, the National Council of Jewish Women vocalized its opposition to President Trump’s D.C. Court of Appeals nominee, Neomi Rao. In a letter to the Chair and Ranking members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the NCJW argued that Rao cannot be fair or independent as a judge. The group accuses Rao of calling date rape the woman’s choice through extensive paraphrasing and quoting the word “choice,” among other varied accusations to justify its opposition.
In a letter sent to Cleveland Jewish News, the NCJW named other judicial nominees within the state of Ohio as well as Trump nominated judges for the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. The group argues that they should be rejected because they “have a history of bias,” and uses examples where these judges resisted left-wing policies.
