Maryland Government and Community Relations
The JCRC of Greater Washington's Maryland Commission is the government advocate and community relations resource for our community. Partnering with local and state organizations to reach out to government officials to advance the legislative agenda of the Jewish community in Maryland.
The Maryland legislative session concluded this past spring with bill signings and final budget documents passed and signed in May and June. The JCRC is pleased to present our 2018 budget and legislative accomplishments.
Each year the JCRC advocates for and secures state and county funding to support Jewish social service and educational institutions that reach tens of thousands of Jews and non-Jews residing in our region. This year alone, the JCRC secured over $3.6 million for Jewish organizations from the states of Maryland and Virginia, and locally in Montgomery County.
In 2018, JCRC also advocated on a wide range of issues of importance to the local Jewish community and our interfaith and community partners, including:

As a part of our ongoing efforts to advocate for policies that benefit the Jewish community, the JCRC of Greater Washington has developed a strong relationship with elected officials and government institutions in Montgomery County and throughout Maryland. We strive to maintain a constant line of communication with community leaders and Maryland residents.
The JCRC of Greater Washington strongly encourages citizens to get directly involved in advocating for public policy. Each calendar year, we sponsor a wide array of events that aim to educate the community on the issues we face, while providing exclusive opportunities to directly engage with public officials and influence policy.
