The Jewish Council for Public Affairs, comprised of 16 national Jewish Organizations, including four major synagogue movements, and 125 local Jewish Community Relations Councils, re-affirms the central value of Jewish unity and the unshakeable bonds that connect Jews to one another and to the State of Israel.
“Many of our affiliated organizations are deeply troubled by the recent decision of the Israeli Cabinet concerning prayer at the Western Wall, as are many individual Jews around the world. We look to the government of Israel to work collaboratively to find solutions to such problems that divide us, in ways that preserve our commitments to one another as a single, global, Jewish community,” they stated.
The mission of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs is to lead, support, shape, coordinate and represent the Jewish community relations movement in order to advance the interests of the Jewish people, support Israel’s quest for peace and security, and promote a just American society and world. JCPA represents 125 local Jewish Community Relations Councils and 16 national Jewish agencies.
