The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) is a standing committee of the Federation. The JCRC serves as the Federation's internal and external outreach arm, engaging all segments of the Greater New Orleans Jewish community and connecting with non-Jewish individuals and groups in the region to promote Jewish values.
The work of the JCRC generally falls into four categories: anti-Semitism and Israel advocacy, social and legislative action, inter-community and inter-faith partnerships, and governmental affairs. In line with the Federation’s new, broad-based approach to external relations, the JCRC is greatly expanding its outreach to non-Jewish communities in Greater New Orleans, especially the African-American community.
