As the central community relations agency of the organized Jewish community in our tri-county area, the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) endeavors to foster a society based on freedom, justice and democratic pluralism for such a society affords Jews, and all people, the conditions most conducive to individual security, equal opportunity and creative group survival. JCRC accomplishes this goal through their work in government relations, Israel advocacy, inter-group relations, and social justice.

On behalf of the Federation’s constituent agencies, organizations and synagogues in Somerset, Hunterdon & Warren Counties, the JCRC determines a consensus on the broad range of public policy issues central to Jewish conscience and concern and then promulgates those concerns to Federal, State and local legislators and civic, public opinion, media and interfaith leaders. The JCRC also coordinates community programs of information and advocacy for priority domestic and international issues.
