JCRC Statement to Legislators working on budget cuts: Keep the needy in mind. 12/2/2012

Statement from the JCRC/ Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines


The JCRC knowing that hard decisions need to be made and in keeping with the prophetic directive of the Jewish tradition to care for the poor and to feed the hungry, urges decision makers in this year of budgetary difficulty to do their utmost to remember and support those who are hungry and in need in our communities, especially children, as they consider ways to reduce local, state, and federal budget deficits.   (December 2, 2012)


Including representatives from Jewish communities throughout Iowa, the Jewish Community Relations Commission (JCRC) is the non-partisan, community affairs committee of the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines.   Contact:
