About Us

The Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) serves as the representative voice of the organized American Jewish community relations field.

The mandate is expressed in two, interrelated goals: 1) to safeguard the rights of Jews here, in Israel, and around the world and, in order to accomplish that, 2) to protect, preserve, and promote a just American society, one that is democratic and pluralistic.

These goals are pursued in a non-partisan manner informed by Jewish values. History teaches us that Jewish security is inexorably linked to the strength of democratic institutions. Thus, our community has a direct stake - along with an ethical imperative - in assuring that America remains a country wedded to the Bill of Rights and committed to the rule of law, whose institutions continue to function as a public trust.
