Jewish Council for Public Affairs
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.
