Featuring Haviv Rettig Gur

More than 650 supporters of JCRC gathered together for the 2024 Annual Event featuring Times of Israel Senior Analyst, Haviv Rettig Gur, one of the highest recorded attendances for JCRC and a testament to the words of JCRC First Vice President, Jacy Rubin Grais, “Many years I have thought that the JCRC was a well kept secret in our community. An incredible organization doing very important work but that not enough people knew about. Over the past eight months that has changed. I have heard story after story from members of the community learning about what JCRC has done and feeling its effects personally whether in their workplace or their child’s school.”

Thank you to our remarkable community for showing up and contributing your time, energy, and resources to advancing JCRC’s mission of building relationships to educate, advocate, and protect our community.

One common theme from each inspiring speaker – including Gov. Tim Walz, community members impacted by antisemitism, and keynote Haviv Rettig Gur – is that JCRC’s work telling our story is more essential now than ever.

This work would not be possible without our Annual Event sponsors and your generous support –
there is still time to donate to JCRC in our 2024 Annual Event campaign.
