In response to the spread of organized anti-Semitism in the United States during the 1930s, leaders of Los Angeles' Jewish community formed a special defense organization known as the Los Angeles Jewish Community Committee. The committee later changed its name to the Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles, Community Relations Committee. The collection documents the committee's efforts to combat prejudice and educate the public through cooperation with both Jewish and non-Jewish groups, from its formation in 1933 through the early 1990s. It consists primarily of administrative records, documentation of fact finding and community relations activities. Part 2 of the collection continues the documentation of the CRC’s activities under the leadership of Leon Lewis through the end of his tenure in 1946.
