& Connecting Communities
That’s what the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) does. We are proud to serve as advocates for the Jewish community, promoting tolerance and cultural diversity. We are educators, fighters of injustice and dedicated to building strong bonds of communication and understanding between the Jewish community and other faith-based communities in Silicon Valley.
For more information on JCRC activities or to volunteer, contact Diane Fisher at 408.357.7504 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

JCRC seeks to teach and apply Jewish values to work toward a more just society and a strong, vibrant Jewish community.
What We Do:
- Build consensus within the organized Jewish community to articulate a shared vision or agreed upon action.
- Collaborate with government, ethnic, faith and community entities on our focus areas and consensus issues.
