About the JCRC

As the public affairs division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, our scope encompasses public policy, communications, education, issue management, interfaith and inter-ethnic relations, and social action. Our priorities include:


Supporting Israel advocacy and education
Strengthening interfaith and inter-ethnic relations
Serving as a resource to the Jewish and greater community
Tikkun Olam: repairing the world through local and state-wide action
As a central convener of the Dallas Jewish community, the JCRC partners with all local Jewish institutions, including synagogues, schools, member organizations and others. The JCRC also works in association with our partner organizations, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the Jewish Federations of North America, and Israel Action Network.

Mission Statement
