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.

If you have been the victim of antisemitism or know someone who has been a victim, we need to know. Keeping track of such incidents allows us to respond, educate, and advocate quickly and accurately. Please contact law enforcement immediately if you feel unsafe or believe a crime has been committed.

Current JCRC Programs & Events

Check out what we have coming down the pike below. Please add any and all to your calendar.

  • After October 7th… everything changed. Many of us wonder: How do we combat antisemitism when it’s everywhere, all at once? How do we heal our community when the grief is so raw? How do we move forward when the future is filled with uncertainty? Join your Jewish Community Relations Council on March 20th as we explore the answers to these questions and more at our 2024 Annual Meeting.

The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati's Jewish Community Relations Council has joined the #StandUpToJewishHate initiative and is inviting you to do the same. Request artwork for your home or vehicle featuring this bold design, inviting your family and neighbors to begin a conversation. You can select yard signs, stickers, and magnets at no cost.
