Ready to deepen your understanding of complex issues facing the community around the world?

The JCRC runs two international missions to Israel, the Government Leadership Mission and the Interfaith Mission. In addition, the JCRC oversees two domestic missions, the Civil Rights Mission to the American South and Harrisburg Advocacy Day to the State Capitol.

Signature Missions

Government Leadership Mission

This mission brings legislators from across Pennsylvania together to explore Israel and delve into the complex challenges of the Middle East’s only democracy, with the intention of strengthening relationships between the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia and leaders from all facets of local and state Pennsylvania government.

Interfaith Mission

This mission brings clergy and community leaders associated with different faith groups together to see the land of Israel and learn more about the intersection of faith and politics in the Jewish state and throughout the Middle East.

Civil Rights Mission

This mission brings participants to Atlanta, Georgia as well as Montgomery, Selma and Birmingham, Alabama to better understand the movements that paved the way for our efforts to help build a just and equitable world. Sponsored by the Jewish Federation’s JCRC, ADL Philadelphia, and AJC Philadelphia/Southern New Jersey, this three-day journey through the history of the civil rights movement will teach participants about the leaders who fought against discrimination and injustice and the events that helped shape our nation.
