Jewish Community Relations Committee (JCRC)

The Jewish Community Relations Committee (JCRC) of the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond (JCFR) is the central public affairs arm of the organized Jewish community. The JCRC handles government affairs and represents the Jewish community on many critical issues.


Working through subcommittees, the JCRC deals with issues including, community safety and security, as well as following the four main pillars of the JCRC: 

  •   Promoting religious freedom and the separation of church and state,
  •   Supporting a democratic, strong and peaceful Israel, as the homeland and nation-state of the Jewish people,
  •   The eradication of all forms of racism and anti-Semitism,
  •   The safety and well-being of Jewish agencies, organizations, and individuals in the Richmond community and environs.
