The JCRC advocates for the collective priorities and concerns of the greater Charlotte Jewish community. The JCRC educates, engages, and mobilizes the broader Charlotte community to act on critical issues facing the greater Charlotte Jewish community, including antisemitism and Israel affairs.

How is the JCRC Connected to the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte?

The JCRC acts as the advocacy and public affairs arm of the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte. Within the JCRC, committee members work with Jewish community leaders, clergy, and others to best represent the Jewish community.

Together with Federation’s Outshine Hate initiative, the JCRC works to provide a consistent and effective framework for the Federation to implement its work for Jewish and Israel advocacy.

How is the JCRC Distinct from Federation?

As part of Federation’s community building efforts to create connections, enhance Jewish life, and strengthen Jewish identity in Charlotte, the JCRC provides a collaborative framework of community relations, advocacy, and civic engagement to promote the interests of the greater Charlotte Jewish community.

What are the JCRC’s Top Priority Areas?

The JCRC works to advance Federation and other Jewish communal organizations’ ability to build flourishing Jewish communities by combatting antisemitism, supporting Israel and world Jewry, and securing the greater Charlotte Jewish community.

This includes:

  • Legislative Affairs and Government Relations: Advocating at the local, state, and national levels to advance Jewish concerns in the public arena, including a strong U.S.-Israel relationship and combatting antisemitism.
  • Israel Engagement: Helping Jewish community members build and maintain strong connections to Israel and the Jewish people, and increasing knowledge, exposure, and support for Israel in the greater Charlotte community.
  • Intergroup Relations: Fostering meaningful relationships and coalitions among elected representatives and diverse ethnic, racial, religious, and interest groups in greater Charlotte.
  • Together with our partner agencies and community institutions, Federation is addressing the need in the Charlotte Jewish community to identify and confront antisemitism and anti-Israel bias.
