Jewish Resources

As part of our role to help Iowans learn more about the Jewish community and the issues that affect us, we’ve compiled a list of Jewish resources to keep you connected to the latest happenings and news. We also invite you to subscribe to emails from the Jewish Community Resources Commission based on the topics that interest you.
