A Jewish Community Forum

March 19th, 2017

The current political environment has profound implications for the policy priorities of our Bay Area Jewish community. In its role as a community convener and champion of democratic values, JCRC – in partnership with the Jewish Community Federation & Endowment Fund and Jewish Community High School of the Bay – is bringing together community leaders, policy experts, political pollsters, academics and journalists for a full-day of education and training. This Jewish Community Forum is intended to provide community members with an opportunity to learn effective strategies for advocacy and the powers of government in our participatory democracy. Attendees will leave empowered with the information, ideas and training needed to engage in civic affairs at the federal, state and municipal levels.

Learn To
