JCRC Board of Directors

JCRC is led by volunteers who participate in committees and in other leadership roles. JCRC has two primary leadership structures, the JCRC Board and the JCRC Council.

The board is responsible for overseeing JCRC's programs as well as its annual budget and other financial matter. It is comprised of 24 members elected by the Council, our past-Presidents and up to two individuals appointed by the President.

The JCRC Council is responsible for JCRC International and Domestic policies and positions in which the JCRC publicly advocates in the name of the Jewish community. It also is responsible for JCRC's participation in the annual resolution process of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs. The council is comprised of representatives of JCRC's 42 member organizations and an equal number of "community representatives." Community representatives are recommended each year by the nominating committee and elected at the Annual Meeting. Each member organization is assigned a number of representatives between 1-3 depending on their size and activity in the community.
