News & Statements

Since 1942, the JCRC has been the organized Jewish community’s public affairs arm, working to protect and promote an American society that is just, democratic, and pluralistic.

Antisemitism often results from a lack of knowledge and familiarity. JCRC’s Student to Student program helps reduce anti-Jewish prejudice through presentations given by a group of Jewish high school students.

Government Affairs & Advocacy

For decades, JCRC has been served as the liaison between elected representatives, policy leaders, and members of Jewish communities throughout Indiana as we tackle some of the state’s most pressing issues.

Community Engagement

JCRC’s work is grounded in building strong relationships with people of various faith traditions, races, and ethnicities, women’s and human rights advocates, and a wide range of civic leaders. 

Supporting a Secure Israel

JCRC leads the community and works with allies to actively counter campaigns that seek to harm Israel. We advocate for a negotiated two-state solution that allows Israelis and Palestinians to live as neighbors in peace.

Commitment to Education

JCRC educates the community at large about antisemitism, Judaism and Jewish culture, and the Holocaust. We believe educating about ourselves – and learning from others – fosters a more secure society for Jews. 

Sweet Lorraine

Each year we lose more direct witnesses to the Holocaust, which makes preserving their stories of vital importance. Our goal is for the documentary Sweet Lorraine in Auschwitz: The Life of Frank Grunwald to serve as an eyewitness testimonial and educational tool for years to come.

The documentary will weave in 1930s American jazz to help depict Holocaust Survivor Frank Grunwald’s journey through concentration camps and death marches. Frank credits his survival to this music. Follow in Frank’s footsteps as we journey from Fishers, Indiana, to the historic streets of Prague, the ash-covered grounds of Auschwitz, the daunting stone steps of Mauthausen, and the Austrian forest where his nightmare finally ended. Frank’s gripping testimony and call to action reveal why hate must never be allowed to thrive in our world.

Your donation will cover on-site filming, post-production editing, travel costs, dedicated staff, music and image licensing, marketing and distribution, and necessary insurance.
