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.  

Community Engagement

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. 

Yom HaShoah Observance

Yom HaShoah is the Jewish day of remembrance of the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust. The Indianapolis Jewish community will gather on April 16, 2023, at Congregation Beth-El Zedeck to remember the victims and honor the Survivors. We extend an invitation to all who wish to join in solidarity with the Jewish community as we observe this tragic event amid rising antisemitism.

Each year we lose more direct witnesses to the Holocaust, which makes preserving their stories of vital importance. The Indianapolis JCRC is in production of Sweet Lorraine in Auschwitz: The Life of Frank Grunwald. This feature-length documentary will weave in 1930s American jazz to help depict Holocaust Survivor Frank Grunwald’s journey through concentration camps and death marches. Learn more and help bring this project to life by visiting the Sweet Lorraine in Auschwitz page.
