About

JCPA in Action: Community Service

The mission of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) is to educate, advocate, and mobilize.  We do this by leading the field in responding to current events and emerging policy concerns.

JCPA is the national hub for more than 125 local Jewish Community Relations Councils, and 16 national Jewish agencies. Our mandate is to advance the interests of the Jewish people; support Israel’s quest for peace and security; to promote a just American society; and advocate for Human Rights around the world. JCPA leads the field in outreach to legislators, civic, racial, ethnic, and faith-based leaders. Backed by an unparalleled capacity to mobilize grassroots Jewish activism, we convene the organized Jewish community on key issues.
