Legislative Reception 2022

Join the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and Mass Association of Jewish Federations (MAJF) for a virtual Legislative Reception to honor outstanding public officials who have demonstrated their commitment to our community's priorities. We will highlight JCRC's work with Jewish Family Service of Metro West on Afghan Resettlement Efforts, our our work to secure funding for social service agencies and non-profit security, and show our appreciation to Governor Charlie Baker for his partnership throughout the years.
