The Jewish Community Relations Committee is a forum for discussion and action on what matters to the Jewish community. It works to promote mutual understanding and cordial relations among northern New Jersey’s racial, religious, civic and ethnic groups. Jewish Federation’s JCRC makes a difference.
Our work focuses on supporting, educating and advocating on behalf of Israel and Jews worldwide. Learn how you can get involved, becoming a voice for Israel and Jews around the world.
We work closely with a broad range of organizations and educational institutions to promote understanding, cooperation and respect among all. Increasing understanding among different ethnic and religious groups and reducing prejudice are a top concern. Learn more about our dialogue groups with various area communities.
The Jewish Leadership Forum brings leadership of the Jewish community together including agencies, synagogues, and organizations to discuss issues of mutual concern and explore opportunities for cooperation and collaboration across denominational streams. Currently the Jewish Leadership Forum is collaborating with Berrie Fellows Unite4Unity on forthcoming communal initiatives.
In our continuing outreach to Northern NJ elected officials, the JCRC sponsors numerous activities including candidates forums, missions to Washington, Legislative Gatherings and other events designed to foster ongoing relationships with officials at the federal, state, county and municipal levels.
