Jewish Community Relations Council

The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) builds bridges of understanding and communication within our Jewish community and beyond to the general community. Whether advocating for Jewish students, teachers and staff within our public schools, meeting with government officials, exploring interfaith initiatives, or strengthening ties to Israel, JCRC represents the interests of our Jewish community every day.

JCRC works with local media to maintain fair and accurate coverage of issues relating to Israel and the Middle East, and other topics of interest to the local Jewish community, and works with local and state law enforcement officials to review and coordinate security plans for local Jewish facilities.

With collaboration from the Jewish Council for Policy Affairs (JCPA), Israel’s Consul General for the Northeastern US, The Israel Action Network, the Jewish Federation Association of Connecticut (JFACT), the Anti-Defamation League, and our sister CT Jewish Federations, the JCRC informs and educates the community.

If you are interested in getting involved with the JCRC or need more information please reach out to our Executive Director, Carin.
