Community Security

The JCRC is dedicated to safeguarding the security and wellbeing of individuals and Jewish communal institutions. Serving as local liaison for the Jewish community, we interact with federal, state and local law enforcement to stay abreast of current events.

We fight on behalf of victims of religious discrimination, educating teachers, school administrators, and businesses about the proper role of religion in public schools. In addition, we sensitize educators and businesses to the Jewish calendar, permitted religious activity and requirements to accommodate religious observances. For example, when local organizations, employers, or schools schedule events on Jewish holidays, we are the place people turn to for help.
