The mission of the Community Relations Committee of the Jewish Federation and Jewish Foundation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, in partnership with its affiliate the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA), is to advocate for Jewish interests and values, dedicate ourselves to the safety and security of the state of Israel, and foster constructive relationships within the Jewish community and among people of all faiths and cultures in order to promote a just, democratic and pluralistic American society.

National Partners

We are members of both Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA).  We also work closely with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on anti-semitism.

JFNA is the umbrella organization for all Jewish Federations in North America. They provide support for day-to-day operations, information about Jewish-related current events, and assist us with planning when we bring delegations to Washington DC.

JCPA represents 125 local JCRCs and 17 national Jewish agencies, including the four main denominations of American Judaism. JCPA provides tremendous information, training & advocacy resources. Sign up for their newsletter to see all they have to offer!

The ADL aims to stop the defamation of the Jewish people & to secure justice & fair treatment to all. They provide excellent resources on helping fight anti-semitism, partner with us on a number of programs & help coordinate response when incidents occur.

"Everybody Counts"
100th Anniversary of Passage of the 19th Amendment
Virtual Presentation by Rabbi Carole B. Balin

Thursday, August 13th, 7pm

To honor the uncounted women in the Book of Numbers and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the U.S. this year, Rabbi Balin has crafted an “alternative Book of Numbers” for her weekly Torah commentaries. She will share this commentary with us and lead a conversation about who was counted in our history, and who is counted today.
