About JCRC of Greater Boston  

The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston (JCRC), JCRC is a coalition of organizations and individuals that represents and advances the values, interests, and priorities of the organized Jewish community in greater Boston. Through our network of agencies, our programs, and our partnerships, we: 

  • Serve as a catalyst for building a strong and vibrant Jewish community in Boston and around the world
  • Advocate for a safe, secure, Jewish, and democratic state of Israel
  • Promote an American society which is democratic, pluralistic, and just. 

Engagement Manager, Israel and Shared Society (Full-Time)

The Engagement Manager will project manage and implement program events that provide opportunities for civic leaders in Boston beyond the Jewish community to learn about and engage with organizations on the ground in Israel and the Palestinian areas that are committed to: 1) Realizing the promise of equality in Israel’s declaration of statehood for all its citizens, and 2) Building the conditions for peace through grassroots shared society and co-existence programs.

Through programming focused on connecting civic leaders with Israeli and Palestinian social change makers (primarily those we have identified and committed to platforming through JCRC’s Boston Partners for Peace initiative), study tours led by senior JCRC professionals, and other initiatives to be developed with JCRC senior team, JCRC seeks to encourage constructive and nuanced approaches to Israel, and positively affect discourse about Israel outside the Jewish Community in Greater Boston. 


Director, Educational Partnerships (Full-Time)

Boston Area Education Initiative 

The Boston Area Education Initiative is a new initiative of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston (JCRC Boston) supported by Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) to utilize government and community relations and academic partnerships to bring the Jewish community and our network of agencies into relationship and partnership with educational leaders at the local and state level.  JCRC Boston seeks to amplify the voice of the Boston area Jewish community in education coalitions, work with school and district leaders to promote an inclusive K -12 school environment in public and independent non-Jewish schools and ensure accurate and inclusive instruction related to Jews, Judaism, Jewish history and Israel. 


The Director of Educational Partnerships is responsible for creating and implementing strategies to situate the Jewish community’s voice and to support a safe and inclusive climate in K-12 schools in Greater Boston. This individual will work closely, support and enhance the work of a range of our member agencies and other national and local partners. This work will include identifying opportunities with school and district leaders to offer K-12 professional learning using materials from partners (e.g. such as the Institute for Curriculum Studies (ICS), and Facing History and Ourselves) and to create external partnerships to engage in education policy at the state and municipal level.
