AN ENDURING COMMITMENT
The Jewish Community Relations Council advocates,
educates and mobilizes the local community to take action in support of a
strong U.S.–Israel relationship and the American government’s role in
promoting a Middle East peace process. JCRC also advocates on behalf of
Jews in other lands, educating the local community about them and
mobilizing to take actions on their behalf if necessary.

JCRC promotes effective advocacy by educating the Jewish and general
communities about Israel, its role in the Middle East, and its
importance to world Jewry. We support cooperation between the U.S. and
Israel in the war on terror, strategic defense in the Middle East, and
the development of missile defense systems.
