The JCRC strives to be a resource not only as the voice of the Jewish community but also as an educator. With the pending announcement by President Trump declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, I wanted to pull a couple resources together to help shed some light on the background of the decision. We at the JCRC believe it is important to distribute good, accurate, and understandable content to the public.  These resources do not reflect our position at this time but are a means for people to be able to form their own opinion on the subject. I also would like to stress the complexity of the issues facing Israel and that no one brief source will be able to give a complete view of the conflict.
