The JCRC of Greater Washington's Northern Virginia Commission is the government advocate and community relations resource for our local Northern Virginia Jewish community.
With more than 67,000 Jews in Northern Virginia, the JCRC of Greater Washington’s Northern Virginia Commission maintains a full-time presence in Richmond during the General Assembly session, working closely with the legislature and coalition partners to pursue our agenda of Jewish community priorities. Our work also includes interfaith affairs, partnering with area schools to create a welcoming environment for all students, and liaising with law enforcement to keep our local Jewish institutions safe.

Northern Virginia Legislative Forum on Jewish Community Issues
Tuesday, December 8th the JCRC hosted the Northern Virginia Legislative Forum on Jewish Community Issues at the JCC of Northern Virginia. Twenty State Senators and Delegates came to share latkes with the Jewish community and discuss key legislative priorities such as voter access, mental health services, and gun violence prevention. We were honored to have Rabbi Evan Ravski of Congregation Olam Tikvah kick off the evening with a Chanukah candle lighting ceremony.
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 Fairfax County and throughout Northern Virginia. We strive to maintain a constant line of communication with community leaders and Northern Virginia 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.
