Important Issues

Grounded in the Jewish traditions of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and caring for those in need, the JCRC’s advocacy efforts build a more just society. JCRC partners with other ethnic, religious, governmental and civic groups to promote discussion, mobilize for change and provide innovative approaches to a number of important issues.
