The Baltimore Jewish Council’s Holocaust Remembrance Commission serves as a resource and referral focal point for Holocaust related issues in Baltimore and a liaison to various resources in our community regarding Holocaust matters.

GOVERNMENT RELATIONS COMMITTEE

The Government Relations Committee (GRC) is responsible for monitoring and adopting positions on federal, state and local legislation. It serves as a vehicle for developing public policy resolutions and positions. The GRC also engages in political activism on behalf of the organized Jewish community. The GRC meets several times each year to discuss public policy issues.  Each year the GRC hosts Advocacy Day in Annapolis, which gives our constituents the opportunity to lobby legislators on behalf of the Greater Baltimore Jewish community.

Monitor and adopt positions on federal, state and local legislation; develop public policy positions; advocate and lobby for public funds to enhance services, safety, and capital projects in the Jewish community

Chairs: Mark Edelson, Melanie Shapiro, Rikki Spector
