JCRC New Board Member Application

Are you interested in fighting antisemitism, advocating for social justice, engaging with elected officials, supporting Israel, developing interfaith relationships, assisting the most vulnerable in our community, and educating our next generation on issues of importance to the Jewish community?
Then you might want to serve on the JCRC's Board of Directors!

The JCRC of Greater Washington is the public affairs and community relations arm of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington representing more than 100 Jewish institutions throughout the region, including synagogues, schools, and human service agencies.
Applicants should be comfortable with the JCRC's mission and understand that serving on the board involves participating in board meetings and other JCRC events; volunteering time, resources, and talent to the organization; and serving on a committee or working on a portfolio.

Prospective board members should have held previous positions of Jewish communal leadership, must represent the agency in a positive way, and adhere to the agency's bylaws, which requires board members to make a financial contribution to both the JCRC and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington each calendar year.

Board members will serve two-year terms, from July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2025. Please note that the JCRC board selection process is very competitive and submission of an application does not guarantee acceptance to the board. The Nominating Committee will assume that the applicant has agreed to serve if chosen.

Installation of new board members will take place at the JCRC Annual Meeting on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 at Congregation Har Shalom in Potomac.

The JCRC of Greater Washington is committed to a diverse, inclusive and equitable environment where all board members feel respected and valued regardless of gender, age, race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity, disability, education and socioeconomic status. 

If you have questions about the application process, please contact JCRC Executive Director, Ron Halber.
