Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We look to advance and represent the Jewish community's values and priorities in the public sphere.

JCRC mobilizes organizations and individuals to support common purposes and shared values. We engage in conversations on issues of shared interest, encouraging Jewish leaders to advocate for our values beyond our sphere. JCRC maintains a strong framework by investing in programs and relationships of importance to Jewish Greater Boston.

JCRC advocates for an inclusive agenda highlighting the innovative work of our agencies. We advance our community's shared priorities by securing public funding, advocating, and engaging in grassroots community organizing for broad-ranging policy change. In addition, JCRC periodically hosts conversations with public and political leaders on various topics of interest and importance to the organized Jewish community.

JCRC is committed to engaging with people from diverse backgrounds to foster civil dialogue and build support for Israel, the national homeland of the Jewish people. JCRC pursues these goals by engaging in work such as community education, cultivating relationships throughout Greater Boston, leading Study Tours to Israel with community leaders.

JCRC engages the Jewish community in Greater Boston in community service through our three signature programs: Greater Boston Jewish Coalition for Literacy (GBJCL), TELEM- teen service learning, and ReachOut!- young adults volunteering. Our programs engage hundreds of volunteers dedicated to creating and sustaining meaningful partnerships with community based organizations.

Our efforts bring increased focus to issues of concern to our partner agencies and the region's Jewish community. We have successfully advocated for state budget priorities that uphold the social safety net and provided the community meaningful service opportunities. We are mobilizing our leaders, congregations, and young adults to stand up for those most vulnerable. We will continue to strengthen our ability to speak on behalf of Great Boston's Jewish community, expand our interfaith networks and collaborations in local communities, and continue to find outlets for our community to act on their Jewish values.
