The Michigan Democratic Jewish Caucus is the voice of Jewish Michiganders within the Democratic Party. Together, we are building a grassroots movement to stand up for our Jewish community, combat antisemitism, and elect Democrats who share our values. In addition to providing financial and organizational support to candidates through our state and federal PACs, we provide a forum for our members to discuss critical policy issues with elected officials and candidates; strengthen the link between Michigan's Jewish community and Democratic officials through strong communications, work to increase Jewish representation in Michigan politics; and advocate for progressive policies that make life better for all Michiganders.
