Jewish Council for Public Affairs

The mission of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs is to serve as the representative voice of the organized American Jewish community in addressing the principal mandate of the Jewish community relations field expressed in three interrelated goals:

1.  To safeguard the rigths of Jews here and around the world;

2.  To dedicate ourselves to the safety and security of the state of Israel;

3.  To protect, preserve, and promote a just American society, one that is democratic and pluralistic, one that furthers harmonious, interethnic, interracial, and other intergroup relations.

MAZON:  A Jewish Response to Hunger

MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a national nonprofit organization working to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel. Founded in 1985, MAZON was the first national organization to rally the American Jewish community around the issue of hunger, and remains the only national Jewish organization dedicated exclusively to that same cause. 

MAZON believes we can end hunger by acting to ensure that hungry people have access to the nutritious food they need today and by working to develop and advance long-term solutions so that no one goes hungry tomorrow.
