JCRC convenes the Jewish community’s “Common Table” around which representatives from every Jewish agency, synagogue, and Jewish organization in central Indiana are welcome and encouraged to sit together to find consensus on issues of concern. JCRC then communicates these interests and values to the community-at-large, policymakers, and media outlets. We build bridges and partnerships wherever possible, cultivating relationships within and among faith & ethnic communities, and acting in coalition with other groups advocating civil rights and social & economic justice for all. JCRC is proactive in combating antisemitism and advocating for Israel. We distribute a calendar of Jewish holidays to help avoid scheduling conflicts, provide factually accurate classroom curricula on Jews, Judaism & Israel, and combat bullying and promote respect & inclusivity in schools. JCRC is an independent, non-profit organization, a constituent agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, and a founding member of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.

Building a legacy.
The Indianapolis Jewish community has been selected as a LIFE & LEGACY partner of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. This forward-thinking program seeks to engage local Jewish organizations in a collaborative endeavor that will ensure the strength of our community now and for the future.
Imagine if you could provide a gift to the Jewish community that would last forever. LIFE & LEGACY is an endowment program designed to help you create permanent legacy gifts, demonstrating your belief in the continuity of Jewish life for generations to come. In partnership with Jewish organizations and synagogues, this program helps individuals and families create ongoing support for the Jewish causes they care about. All of us, regardless of age, wealth, or affiliation, have the ability to help sustain a vibrant Jewish community now and in the future.
Legacy gifts will enable the JCRC to plan thoughtfully for the future and more fully realize our goals through critically important programming that require staff and resources to execute, including interfaith and civic engagement, Jewish engagement, and teaching teachers and preachers.
We are so proud that the Indianapolis Jewish community has made community relations a priority for nearly 75 years, and we would be smart to ensure the JCRC’s existence in our community for the next 75 years!
