We help keep our community safe.

The JCRC is the central coordinating and resource organization for the security of the Jewish community in the Columbus area. The Security and Emergency Preparedness function of the JCRC works closely with homeland security, law enforcement and emergency preparedness agencies at the federal, state and local levels. We partner with a wide range of experts to alert Jewish institutions to threats. We identify and disseminate “best practices” for Jewish institutions in central Ohio.
