Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington


Public affairs & community relations arm of the Jewish community of Greater Washington.

As the central community relations agency of the organized Jewish community in our nation’s capital, the JCRC of Greater Washington endeavors to foster a society based on freedom, justice and democratic pluralism for it is such a society which affords Jews, and all people, the conditions most conducive to individual security, equal opportunity and creative group survival. The JCRC accomplishes this goal through our work in four pillars: government relations, Israel advocacy, inter-group relations, and social justice. On behalf of over 100 constituent agencies, organizations and synagogues in the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland, the JCRC determines a consensus on the broad range of public policy issues central to Jewish conscience and concern and then promulgates those concerns to Washington area legislators and civic, public opinion, media, and interfaith leaders. The JCRC also coordinates community programs of information and advocacy on priority domestic and international issues.
