Community Relations Committee

Community Relations Committee

The CRC works to provide a forum for discussion and coordinated action on public policies that are a concern to the Central KY Jewish community. The CRC focuses on educational, legislative, and media efforts on issues including, religious freedom, antisemitism, Israel, pluralism, separation of religion and state, and equality of opportunity for all.

The purpose of the CRC is to help maintain and strengthen the dignity, security, and integrity of Jewish Life. It is the vehicle through which the Jewish Community is represented in Central KY through discussions, activities, programs, and advocacy. The CRC builds coalitions that help improve inter-group relations and protect human rights.
