Building bridges and creating
moments of meaning.
The Jewish Community Relations Council, inspired by Jewish values, seeks to sustain a more civil and caring community in Western New York and around the world.
Representing the Buffalo Jewish community, we will:
- Build meaningful and collaborative relationships with other faith, ethnic, and cultural communities toward the goal of building a more civil society.
- Be visible and vocal in the greater community during times of crisis and on vital social issues.
- Be actively involved in key issues impacting the Jewish community
- Educate and advocate on all those issues, seeking consensus based on core Jewish values.
Respecting all viewpoints and with concern for social justice, we will build our collective voice based on the following core Jewish values:
Paths of peace. Keeping peace through ongoing inter-group relations, promoting mutual respect, and fostering understanding within our community.
