NCJW Calls on Jewish Women to Fast for Immigration Reform

The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is urging Jewish women to fast on March 13th for immigration reform that is fair to women, children, and families. This effort commemorates the steadfast bravery and leadership of Queen Esther, whose advocacy saved Jews from persecution in biblical times. It is being held in conjunction with a campaign called We Belong Together, which is leading women across the country in a month-long action centered around fasting for immigration reform, in partnership with SEIU and the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM).
