JCRC's Report the Community
As 2017 comes to a close, we are proud to share with you JCRC’s Report to the Community, highlighting our agency’s extensive achievements for the two-year period beginning July 1, 2015 and ending June 30, 2017. We invite you to scroll through the report to get a sense of the wide range of issues JCRC covers throughout the Greater Washington D.C. region.
Our accomplishments are only possible thanks to your generous support, which we hope you will continue this year.
The JCRC's work impacts our entire community. In the last year, we:
Mobilized our community to ensure that Montgomery County Public Schools continue to
close on the High Holidays
Secured millions of dollars in government support for our stellar Jewish social services
Responded to the resurgence of anti-Semitism and bigotry by intensifying
cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, increasing interfaith and inter-group
outreach & collaboration, and educating & training members of our own community
Led regional and national briefings on Israel and the Middle East with experts including
Ambassador Dennis Ross, Deputy Minister Michael Oren, David Makovsky, Tamara
Cofman Wittes, and Avi Issacharoff
Partnered with HIAS to galvanize our community's support for refugees and immigrants
Advocating. Educating. Protecting. Empowering. Whether representing our community in D.C., Annapolis, or Richmond, preparing high school students to engage with and advocate for Israel on college campuses, opposing efforts to delegitimize Israel, or working in coalition with other faith and ethnic communities to combat acts of bias in our schools and beyond, JCRC is there for you.
Your support allows us to be your voice, championing the causes most important to our community.
Please consider making a year-end gift to the JCRC to support our superbly effective, efficient, and inclusive grass-roots advocacy on behalf of the Jewish people, the State of Israel, and our broader local community.
With best wishes for peace, health, and happiness in 2018,
