The Jewish Community Relations Council of Southern New Jersey works with other community and educational organizations to advocate for the security and well-being of the Jewish community. By building relationships with our local government officials, we are able to call on them when we need them the most to support the Jewish people.
Through community programming and missions to Israel, our JCRC strives to educate and bring awareness to the security concerns, anti-Semitism, and international issues that are most pressing to the Jewish community and Israel.
