We help to create an
inclusive, fair, and just
society based on our
Jewish values.

We are JCPA.

Since its founding 80 years ago, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) has served as the national convener of Jewish coalitions working to build a just and inclusive democracy—bringing together national and local partners to address the issues that most deeply affect our community and advance our most essential values.

Today, JCPA is mobilizing the robust community relations network and its partners in pursuit of a more just and democratic society for all, rooted in an abiding belief that Jewish security here and abroad is tied to the health of our democracy and strong relationships between communities. Only by building bridges across lines of difference and fostering solidarity between communities can we advance an inclusive future in which Jews – and all people – are safe and free.
