“The world is a scary place. It is hard not to feel vulnerable...and even angry. People are retreating into bubbles. That just makes it worse. We MUST meet, know, and discuss who we are, what we believe, and how to work together. The Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) does that. JCPA creates dialogue between various religions and amongst ourselves.”
- Jane Schiff, Naples, Florida
“JCPA takes a leading role in coordinating Jewish interfaith efforts. Dynamic new programs like Interfaith Partners for Peace bring Jews and Christians together in cities across America.”
- Rabbi Leonard Gordon, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts
“Poverty isn’t a disease. It isn’t a tropical storm. And it isn’t a terror threat. It may not be in the news, but it hasn’t gone away… through its (the JCPA) network of 125 Jewish communities, JCPA is the pre-eminent Jewish advocate for programs that give hope to the poor.”
- Warren Wolfson, Cleveland, Ohio
These are just a few words from three of the tens of thousands of JCPA supporters throughout the United States. No one can do it alone. From combating anti-Semitism to confronting poverty, promoting civility, and protecting Israel, the JCPA is connecting our communities to take action together. And we have a lot of work to do. Join us as we strengthen the Jewish community and bring people together to address the most important issues of our time.
