Public Affairs

With decades of experience, JCRC is the go-to public affairs organization for the Jewish community and a trusted liaison with political and civic leaders. As a convener and advocate, JCRC cultivates the Jewish community’s commitment to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), providing opportunities for activism and advocacy for the causes we believe in. JCRC is proud to work and build coalitions with interfaith and interethnic partners on issues of shared concern, united by our common pursuit of a just society.

The San Francisco Interfaith Council is blessed to count the JCRC as a valued partner. The contributions made by JCRC to interfaith work in San Francisco, in general, and to advancing the mission of the SFIC, in particular, cannot be overstated.  Luminaries at the JCRC were visionaries in the SFIC’s founding and continue to lead the way in engaging ethnically and religiously diverse groups, providing sensible leadership on issues of controversy or concern, and enhancing the quality of life in San Francisco.”

-Michael G. Pappas, Executive Director, San Francisco Interfaith Council

What's New

Take a Stand for Solidarity #NoBanNoWall

President Trump has signed executive orders to build a wall between the US and Mexico, to cut federal funding to "sanctuary cities," and to bar entry to refugees from several Muslim-majority countries. Take action now to tell him that you stand in solidarity with the communities targeted and that these actions are in no way acceptable. ACT NOW!

Bear a Torch for Liberty

JCRC's "Bear a Torch" campaign shines a light on the people and groups in our community who have stood for the consensus positions that we together strive to uphold as we work with our allies for pluralism and justice. For the several weeks surrounding Hanukah we will be highlighting these torchbearers of liberty whose inspiring work assures a just society and a secure Jewish future.
