JCRC is committed to engaging with people from diverse backgrounds to foster civil dialogue and build support for Israel, the national homeland of the Jewish people. JCRC pursues these goals by engaging in work such as community education, cultivating relationships throughout greater Boston, leading Study Tours to Israel with community leaders and supporting national efforts through our partnership with the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.
We are committed to the vision of Israel laid out in Israel’s Declaration of Independence: a society that will be “based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel; will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex; will guarantee freedom of religion, conscience, language, education and culture; will safeguard the Holy Places of all religions; and will be faithful to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations.” We believe in Israel’s right to exist in peace as a Jewish and democratic state with secure and defined borders.
