Jewish Community Relations Council of Metropolitan Detroit/AJC
Jewish Community Relations Council/AJC
The Jewish Community Relations Council/AJC (JCRC/AJC) coordinates the community’s public affairs agenda, builds ties between the Jewish community and the rich mix of ethnic, civic and religious groups in metropolitan Detroit, and provides a Jewish voice to the media, government, educators, organized labor and the business community. JCRC/AJC’s agenda focuses on advocacy for Israel, preserving America’s commitment to pluralistic democracy, civil liberties and social justice, and on building a stronger, more unified Detroit Jewish community. JCRC/AJC’s areas of expertise are in media relations, government relations, grassroots advocacy and coalition building. JCRC/AJC carries the dual responsibility of reflecting the Jewish community’s consensus while providing leadership in pursuit of traditional and contemporary Jewish values. It is both a gathering of activists and a platform for advocacy, agents of social change, and stewards of conscience. JCR/AJC serves as a catalyst to heighten community awareness, encourages civic and social involvement, and provides a forum to deliberate key issues of importance to the Jewish community.
