The JCRC advocates and acts on issues at the local, state and federal levels to advance Jewish concerns in the public arena, seeking to impact public policy and foster a society based on freedom, justice and democratic pluralism.

As a major voice of the Jewish community in the nation’s capital, the JCRC:

  • Supports the public policy and funding priorities of the Jewish community and its partners through advocacy, coalition-building and community education;
  • Convenes programs on selected issues of concern to our community;
  • Writes and encourages constituents to write op-eds and letters to the editor;
  • Convenes candidate forums;
  • Arranges meetings between elected officials and Jewish community members both in their home districts and in their government offices to discuss policy and funding priorities; and
  • Convenes and mobilizes the Jewish community in times of celebration, commemoration and crisis.
