JCRC/AJC: A Partnership for Community Relations and Jewish Advocacy, unites our community’s premiere community relations and advocacy organizations in Detroit, and expands the agency’s capacity to deliver quality initiatives and programs.  Under the partnership, JCRC/AJC maintains a local focus but gains access to the outstanding resources of AJC. AJC’s worldwide network, which includes 10 international offices and 32 association agreements with Jewish communities around the world, brings a wealth of resources and program opportunities to this community.

The critical importance of developing collaborative relationships with our neighbors could not be more apparent or pressing at this time. Interfaith outreach and Israel advocacy efforts are seeing the greatest growth due to the partnership. Facing a rise in anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry, we have re-committed this agency to its core mission – building bridges of understanding between the Jewish community and its neighbors.  In doing so, we will stand up for Israel and the values that we hold dear, and increase understanding in the greater community. We invite you to help us do even more by becoming involved in our various programs and by financially supporting them.


Dr. Richard Krugel, President             David Kurzmann, Executive Director
