The mission of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) is the survival and security of the Jewish people in our community and nation, in the Jewish and democratic State of Israel, and throughout the world. But we recognize that this survival and security relies on collaboration, relationship-building, advocacy, open communication, education, understanding, respect, and justice.


2021 JCRC Programs



Leaders in Light is a prestigious, first-of-its kind, year-long leadership development program that will create a network of informed and influential change agents. Leaders from all sectors, backgrounds and beliefs who connect in learning and action to build a stronger Cincinnati—one that’s home to a thriving, healthy civil society where hate and extremism can’t take root.

The Jewish Community Relations Council is examining the current crisis in America through its speaker series To Bigotry No Sanction: Jewish Perspectives at the Crossroads of American Democracy and Pathways Forward. Each program will unpack a different aspect of the changing dynamics in our democracy, with a focus on what we as citizens can do to strengthen it.
