The Power of the Network

aka JCPA   |   New York, NY   |  www.jewishpublicaffairs.org

Mission

Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) is the national hub of the community relations network, representing 125 local Jewish community relations councils and 16 national Jewish agencies, including the four main denominations of American Judaism (Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist). JCPA convenes, coordinates, builds consensus, and mobilizes our network on key issues while serving as the national representative of the network’s public policy and public affairs platform. Together, we and our network advocate for a just and pluralistic American society, Israel’s quest for peace and security, and human rights around the world in common cause with other civic, racial, ethnic, and faith-based leaders. Our motto is to educate, advocate, and mobilize.
