Intergroup Relations

The Jewish Community Relations Council works to promote mutual understanding and harmonious relations among St. Louis' varied racial, religious, civic and ethnic groups. We believe that the greatest strength of any community is the people of which it is comprised. To that end, we have opened honest and raw dialogue, advocated on joint issues, and created programs to engage thousands of others in our shared work.
