The Community Relations Council is the public affairs arm of the organized Tidewater Jewish community. It represents the area synagogues and Jewish agencies on issues impacting the rights and protection of Jews as individuals and as a community. The CRC works to educate the community on public affairs issues and translates these issues into community action with the greater community, public officials, other faith and ethnic communities and the media.
