We develop meaningful relationships with ethnic, religious, civic, business and academic leaders and strengthen ties with our policy makers. We collaborate on initiatives focusing on the mutual enhancement and vitality of the diverse constituencies of Cincinnati. We advocate for the priorities of the local Jewish community.

 

As a community, we will continue to work together with a broad range of organizations such as the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition (MARCC), the Chamber of Commerce, Xavier University, the University of Cincinnati, the Islamic Center of Cincinnati and faith communities that are committed to making Cincinnati an inclusive and diverse city. In our work, we also have a tremendous partner in Ohio Jewish Communities (OJC), which coordinates advocacy efforts for all eight Jewish communities throughout Ohio. 
 
We are excited to play our part in helping our great city thrive and encourage you to do the same.​

The Jewish Community Relations Council works to promote and engage with a variety of interfaith community initiatives and organizations in Cincinnati that seek to foster respect, education and understanding while striving to ensure a just society for all.

 

When working in an interfaith capacity, it is important to entertain different perspectives, opening the mind to new knowledge and ideas. To foster better understanding of our faiths through conversation and other educational forums, we encourage you to review this facilitation guideline on hosting a speaker of religious faith
