Jewish Community Relations Council

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) is a locally based Jewish organization that carries out "action agendas on behalf of and in the name of the local Jewish communities."[1] Councils may aim "to represent the consensus of the organized Jewish community" in the cities in which they operate, and then assist in consulting other local stakeholders on matters of importance to Jewish community values.[2] In the United States, JCRCs are affiliated with the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) organization, and relate to that national organization in a variety of ways.[1]
