JCPA is the organized Jewish community’s primary convener and consensus-builder, community relations powerhouse, and policy advocate.
JCPA works in support of the Jewish community, advocates for our country’s most vulnerable persons, combats rising antisemitism, hate, and bigotry, ensures a vital and strong democracy, leads the Jewish community to the table as a key player in the response to racism, and raises a strong voice to promote Israel’s efforts for peace.
Today’s fractious environment sees JCPA and its grassroots/national network ever more vibrant, dynamic, and crucial. We know that when our community comes together, we make a significant impact. Jewish unity is essential, so that we can continue to work toward our vision of a just and pluralistic America.
Please join us at this special Benefit to support our work. The challenges remain many going forward.
