The Strength and Heart of Our Community

The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle leverages the strength and heart of Puget Sound’s diverse Jewish community to secure a vibrant Jewish future locally, in Israel, and around the world and to champion a just, democratic, and pluralistic society.

 The JCRC includes organizational members representing Puget Sound-area synagogues and Jewish organizations, at-large members, and board officers. The JCRC is funded and operated by the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle and is one of 122 Jewish community relations councils affiliated with the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.

 The JCRC’s core work includes:

  • Combating antisemitism, bigotry, and racism
  • Supporting a peaceful, secure, Jewish, and democratic state of Israel
  • Fostering positive and meaningful relations with other communities and public officials
  • Strengthening our Jewish communities through building cohesion and civil discourse
