Where We Stand

The JCRC strives to provide thoughtful statements in response to arising local and global Jewish issues.

The JCRC comes across a variety of issues from year to year and it is sometimes challenging to identify which issues we should focus on. To determine this, we have created a decision making flow chart which highlights our process for choosing an issue to take on.
