  • promotes better understanding between the Jewish community and the community at large with respect to issues affecting the local, state, national and international Jewish community
  • enlists governmental and public support on behalf of Israel
  • enlists governmental and public support for oppressed communities throughout the world, with special vigilance against genocide
  • advocates positions on human services and social legislation affecting the Jewish community
