Who We Are
The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) is a public affairs organization working on behalf of the Bay Area Jewish community. It represents synagogues and Jewish organizations on critical issues affecting Jews as individuals and as a community.
JCRC creates consensus and leads advocacy efforts in the organized Jewish community, ensuring that our voices are amplified and heard. We build bridges with other faith, interest and ethnic based groups that share our passion for social justice, forging relationships based on the issues our community cares about most.
JCRC is one of 125 Jewish Community Relations Councils in the country. Together, these JCRCs form the grassroots of the national umbrella organization, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.
JCRC is represented in Sacramento by the Jewish Public Affairs Committee (JPAC), the voice in our State Capitol for the California organized Jewish community.
