Where We Stand:
Jewish Community Concerns
For over half a century, JCRC has played an important role by bringing public policy
issues to the government’s attention and taking action on behalf of the
metro Detroit Jewish community.
JCRC’s board of directors and its committees develop and officially adopt policy statements relevant to our mission and goals. The board uses a rigorous, inclusive process that
allows for all voices to be heard and does not guarantee that any particular viewpoint will prevail.
JCRC's staff works to advance the issues outlined by these
policies – reaching out and motivating Jews and non-Jews alike to
action, convening delegations of community leaders to meet with
federal, state and local government officials, and offering ourselves as a resource and sounding
board to all government officials.
