This is an initiative of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC) that works with federal, state, and local law enforcement officials to provide security guidance and serve as the official Jewish community liaison with law enforcement. The JCRC advocates on behalf of victims of religious discrimination as well as educates teachers and school administrators about the proper role of religion in public schools.  The JCRC also sensitizes schools and businesses about the Jewish High Holy Days.

J Street Minnesota promotes a safe, secure and democratic Israel as a homeland for the Jewish people, alongside a geographically and economically viable state of Palestine as a homeland for the Palestinian people. We seek to demonstrate that the pro-Israel, pro-peace view is the position of large numbers of Jews in Minnesota. We work to exercise our civic duty as Americans, communicating with our own government about American diplomatic policy that we believe is most helpful to Israel, and to expand the dialogue about Israel and her needs in the Twin Cities Jewish community. Visit our website for our current mission and principles, as well as recent press releases.
