The elections are over and we are facing a new reality. Some in our community are satisfied and comfortable with this; others are experiencing challenging emotions. The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) encourages members of our society to actively participate in our community.
Focusing Forward, Post-Election
JCRC is hosting a two-part conference call series of one-hour calls to hear from some of our constituent organizations as to their perspective.
These calls are off the record and no press will be specifically invited.
- For community members to gain some perspective and receive helpful information from community leaders and their organizations
- For us all to begin a process of really listening and hearing one another, even if we disagree
- To help community members in moving forward together
JCRC Chair Ben Lusher will moderate the calls and JEWISHcolorado President & CEO Doug Seserman will make Closing Remarks.

The JCRC (Jewish Community Relations Council), a program of JEWISHcolorado, advocates for domestic and international policy issues that affect the Colorado Jewish community, represents these views to the Jewish community and to the general community of Colorado, and organizes the Jewish community in times of crisis.
