Local Government Relations
The JCRC's Maryland, Northern Virginia and District of Columbia Commissions partner with local and state organizations to reach out to government officials at the federal, state and local levels to advance the legislative agenda of the the Jewish community in Metropolitan Washington: government funding for our agencies' programs, tax policy as it affects nonprofit organizations, support for Israel, and community relations issues such as anti-Semitism and church-state relations.
Advocate for Israel
The JCRC coordinates our community's response to Middle East issues, from advocating support of Israel to political leaders and the media to educating the community through regular briefings and programs. Find out more.
