Areas of Focus


The representative of the metropolitan Detroit Jewish community and Israel to the general community, JCRC/AJC concentrates its efforts on making a difference in the areas that matter the most to our local constituents.

Israel

JCRC/AJC advocates, educates and mobilizes the local community to take action in support of Israel, including advocating for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship and promoting a successful Middle East peace process

Interfaith

Through partnerships, events, community programs and discussions, JCRC/AJC works to maintain and improve ongoing relationships with major ethnic, religious, racial and civic groups in metropolitan Detroit.

Volunteer

JCRC/AJC “builds a community of activists,” which includes Jewish and non-Jewish community members, leaders and organizations, by creating opportunities for hands-on social action.

Literacy

In October 2016, the Michigan legislature passed a law stating that third-grade students, starting with those attending during the 2018-2019 academic year, could be held back if they are more than one grade level behind in reading, based on their standardized test scores.

Media

JCRC/AJC is the media relations agency for the Detroit Jewish community, serving as the primary resource for print, broadcast and online outlets on topics relating to Israel, Judaism and the local Jewish community.

Public Affairs

JCRC/AJC maintains a direct, on-going connection to public officials at the federal, state and local level, while remaining nonpartisan. Through meetings, targeted outreach and events, we strive to keep top decision-makers informed of important issues including Israel, immigration and gun violence prevention.

JCRC/AJC’s mission is to represent the metropolitan Detroit Jewish community, Israel and Jews throughout the world to the general community, and to establish collaborative relationships with other ethnic, racial, civic and religious groups. JCRC/AJC educates and advocates on important issues, seeking consensus with a commitment to Jewish values.
