The National Council of Jewish Women, New York Section.
Founded in 1894, The National Council of Jewish Women is a volunteer organization inspired by Jewish values with approximately 2,000 members in New York. The group works through a program of research, education, advocacy and community service to improve the quality of life for women, children and families, and strives to ensure individual rights and freedom for all.
The Council originally acquired the 69th Street property in the early 1950's to be used for member meetings, social events and informal gatherings. However, as the organization moves into the new millennium, it is hoping to encourage membership among a growing number of working women, and the new building will he more accessible for weekday events. In addition, the building is closer to other not-for-profit organizations in the area.
"We're looking forward to hosting breakfast and luncheon meetings that fit into the working woman's schedule," noted Jean Krosner, co-president of the organization. "We want to encourage young members who will grow with the organization."
The National Council of Jewish Women purchased the new location on Second Avenue from Broadway Management Co. A majority of the profits from the sale will be used to enhance the Council's programs, which serve women, children and families. The Council plans to relocate before year-end.
The Cushman & Wakefield team of Matthew Astrachan, director, and Noel Berk, associate director, of the company's Financial Services Group, represented the Council in both transactions.
"The most exciting aspect of our involvement has been helping the New York Section move into a facility that will serve its members' needs in the 21st century," noted Astrachan. "The building is equipped with the latest technology, including high-speed Internet access."
