Ohio Jewish Communities (OJC) was created by the eight Jewish Federations in Ohio. We represent the Federations and their partner agencies and Jewish organizations and congregations on domestic and international issues in Columbus and in Washington. Our mission is to enhance the Jewish community's ability to serve vital human needs. To achieve this goal, Ohio Jewish Communities secures funds, educates and maintains relationships with government officials and encourages sound public policy. While Israel is number one, it is not the only one on our agenda
Ohio Jewish Communities works to ensure that the voice of the Jewish community is a prominent force in health and human service policy decisions on Capitol Hill and Capitol Square.
OJC’s funding comes primarily from the Federations (and your generous support of the Federations' annual campaigns), with support from organizations and individuals/corporations. OJC is located off Capitol Square in Columbus and has a two-person staff.
