Advocacy & Government Affairs
JCRC serves as the liaison between elected representatives, policy leaders, and members of Jewish communities throughout Indiana. We advocate for policies that promote equity, religious freedom, and human rights.
JCRC builds strong relationships with people of various faith traditions, ethnicities, human rights advocates, and civic leaders. We build coalitions and work alongside community partners to combat the issues that divide us.
Supporting a Secure Israel
JCRC leads the community and works with allies to actively counter campaigns that seek to delegitimize 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 in Auschwitz
During JCRC’s Annual Meeting, Board President Jamie Ratner Rich announced a $25,000 matching gift from Steve Jacobs and the Sharon Jacobs Fund for the Sweet Lorraine in Auschwitz documentary. This exciting announcement puts us another step closer to completing fundraising for the documentary, but in order to unlock the gift, we need to raise another $25,000, which will provide us with the necessary funds needed to complete this project. Watch an exclusive clip below and help us unlock the gift by visiting the Sweet Lorraine in Auschwitz page.
