About us, what is the JCRC? 

Who we are:

The Jewish Community Relations Committee (JCRC) of the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond (JCFR) is the central public affairs arm of the organized Jewish community. The JCRC handles government affairs and represents the Jewish community on many critical issues.

Four Pillars of the JCRC:

  • Eradicating Antisemitism and all forms of racism.
  • Ensuring the safety and well-being of Jewish agencies, organizations, and individuals in greater Richmond.
  • Supporting a strong, democratic, and peaceful Israel, as the homeland and nation-state of the Jewish people.
  • Promoting religious freedom and the separation of church and state.
