ADVOCATE & COMMUNITY RELATIONS

Jewish Federation’s Jewish Community Relations Committee is the advocacy and public affairs arm for our community. JCRC has three main areas of focus: combatting antisemitism; building support for Israel and standing up to BDS (Boycott, Divestment, & Sanctions against Israel); & legislative advocacy.  JCRC takes action – initiating meetings and events to advocate for our Jewish community, building relationships with government and elected officials, and finding areas of common public policy interest with leaders of other faith, racial, and ethnic groups. JCRC designs and sponsors programs that seek to prevent and address antisemitism, promote a greater understanding and positive view of Israel, and better understand government and public policy. It also advocates on behalf of our community’s needs, including security, seniors, Holocaust survivors, and disabled adults.
