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. JCPA represents the network nationally, working in common cause with other civic, racial, ethnic, and faith-based leader and policy makers. 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.
Since 1944, JCPA has been the organized national Jewish community’s convener, intergroup connector, and policy advocate.
Our motto is to educate, advocate, and mobilize.
