Our Community Relations Initiatives

Israel Engagement Initiative

Our vision for the future is to capitalize on the rich and diverse Jewish foundation of our community to build living bridges and help create many encounters, connections and relationships across all generations and affiliations

Israel Education Fellowships

IEF quadruples the money you put away for your child so that they can spend it later on a meaningful experience in Israel.

Jewish Community Relations Council

The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) acts as a coordinating body among all our members and Jewish organizations in Charleston. The JCRC opens and nurtures positive relationships with all racial, religious and ethnic groups in Charleston.

The Remember Program

The REMEMBER program educate about the horrors of the Holocaust and honors Holocaust survivors from the Charleston area and their descendants as well as those who participated in the liberation of the concentration camps.
