The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) is the political voice of Jewish Democrats. JDCA advocates for Jewish values and priorities within the Democratic Party and for the Democratic Party within the Jewish community. JDCA does not define itself or its positions based on those taken by other pro-Israel or progressive organizations but it will work with those organizations to the extent their priorities align with JDCA’s uniquely Jewish voice within the Democratic Party.

JDCA’s positions on key issues of concern to the Jewish community are:

Civil Liberties and the Constitution

Americans need to feel confident in the fairness and full functioning of our democracy.

Economic Opportunity

Growing income disparities and the erosion of the middle class endanger our democracy. Action must be taken to close those gaps.

  • Education
  • Health Care
  • Jobs
  • Paid Family Leave
  • Social Security and Welfare
  • Taxes
Foreign Policy and Global Security

Protecting our allies and security interests abroad is critical to the safety of the United States in a global and interconnected world.

Human Rights and Inclusion

We strongly believe in the principle of human dignity and that the rights of all must be safeguarded.
