Jewish Community Relations Council | JCRC

Advocating for the Colorado Jewish community.

Rooted in shared Jewish values and an enduring commitment to Israel, the JCRC is the public policy arm of the Colorado Jewish community. The JCRC has 38 member agencies and 12 at-large members representing different parts of the Jewish community. As the central community relations agency of the organized Jewish community in Colorado, the JCRC is both a voice for the Jewish community at the Colorado State Capitol and a partner in building relationships with other faith, ethnic, and stakeholder communities.

As part of its effort to educate the Jewish community on critical public policy issues, the Colorado Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) is proud to present its Speakers Series.

The death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police sparked a national conversation on how systemic racism exists in many facets of our society. This year, the Speakers Series will focus on some of those issues—especially those that have been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Legislative Update

In 2022, JEWISHcolorado, its Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), and more than 100 coalition partners helped pass HB22-1077, creating a state nonprofit security grant program for qualified nonprofit organizations at high risk of a terrorist attack. Representatives Dafna Michaelson Jenet and Iman Jodeh, and Senators Kevin Priola and Chris Hansen were the bill’s sponsors.

In 2020, all of the one hundred Colorado General Assembly members voted in favor of the Holocaust and Genocide Studies in Public Schools bill, which calls on the State Board of Education to strengthen standards for instruction on this important subject.

As of this legislative session, nearly one hundred Colorado public officials have traveled to Israel on the JCRC’s biennial Public Officials Mission.
