After 100 years in operation, the Columbus chapter of the National Council of Jewish Women will close as of June 30 due to difficulty in filling leadership positions and developing a succession pipeline.

“On behalf of our board, we want to express our deep appreciation for all that our members, patrons, volunteers and supporters have done, individually and collectively, to help NCJW Columbus accomplish so much over the past century,” NCJW Columbus past president Nicki Bloch said in a June 7 news release.

In compliance with NCJW national bylaws, all remaining assets of the chapter will be managed by the organization’s national office. However, as one of the final acts of the chapter, NCJW Columbus acquired the naming rights for a prenatal care center, the Space for CenteringPregnancy, which will be at the Heart of Ohio Family Health at James B. Feibel Center in Columbus.
