Established by the Indiana Jewish community while the Holocaust was unfolding in Europe, the core of JCRC’s mission is to safeguard Jews here in the U.S., in Israel, and around the world, by combatting antisemitism through relationship-building and education. Since 1942, the JCRC has been the public affairs arm of the organized Jewish community, working to protect and promote an American society that is just, democratic, and pluralistic.
JCRC convenes the Jewish community’s “Common Table” around which representatives from Jewish synagogues, agencies, and organizations come together to build consensus on issues important to the Jewish community. We then translate these positions into action through engagement and advocacy.
As the interfaith and intergroup relations arm of the Jewish community, we look to build bridges wherever possible, acting in coalition with groups that fight discrimination and advocate for human & civil rights and work towards social & economic justice.
JCRC is the official media relations arm of the Indianapolis Jewish community, serving as the primary resource for print, broadcast, and online outlets on topics relating to the local Jewish community, Judaism, and Israel.
