Advocating for
Jewish and
Democratic values

Who We Are

The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) is the voice of Jewish Democrats and socially-progressive, pro-Israel values that Jewish voters hold dear. JDCA supports candidates and elected officials who share our policy positions and advocates for policies that reflect Jewish and Democratic values.

Making a difference

“It is so important that we not allow Israel to be a partisan issue… I don’t know of any group that is doing more to prevent that from happening than [JDCA].”

Senate Democratic Leader
Chuck Schumer

“All of your voices are so needed today. We want to hear the voice of Jewish Democrats promote socially progressive, pro-Israel values.”

Senator Jacky Rosen

“Without you, I’m not sure that we would be in the majority. Your efforts were heroic.”

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer

“JDCA is extremely needed at this specific moment in time”

Rep. Elissa Slotkin

“JDCA, which is so needed, in a very short time has become so influential”

Ambassador Dan Shapiro
