Our Mission

Jewish Community Relations Bureau|AJC is the Jewish community advocate for combating antisemitism and pursuing justice.

To educate and empower Jewish middle school students to respond to antisemitism, JCRB|AJC, KC BBYO Connect, and KCUSY will host a virtual Words to Acton workshop on Sunday, May 23 at 2PM. In this 1.5 hour interactive program, led by JCRB|AJC’s Education and Program Associate, students will learn how to recognize antisemitism, examine real-world examples of antisemitism, and discuss strategies to respond to antisemitism when they encounter it in their own lives.

All Jewish middle school students in the KC area are eligible. Advance registration is required. Click "Read More" to register.

JCRB|AJC is currently accepting applications from outstanding rising high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors who are interested in Jewish advocacy for this year’s Leaders For Tomorrow (LFT) program, beginning in Fall 2021.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, however, we urge interested students to apply quickly, before the cohort becomes full. Participants will be selected based on their application and a phone interview. There is no cost to participate.

We are horrified by the shooting spree in Atlanta, which left eight people—including six Asian American women—dead.

As hate crimes targeting Asian Americans surge across America, we stand in solidarity with our friends and partners in the Asian American community.

Hate crimes against Asian Americans are not new. One year ago, Representative Grace Meng and UCA President Haipei Shue joined AJC to warn of a surge of anti-Asian violence.

We are pleased to share with you special online offerings from Advocacy Anywhere, Powered by AJC, which allow you to engage with AJC’s leading experts, content, and advocacy opportunities from the comfort of your home.
