Hide Profile

Orthodox Jewish overseas relief organization affiliated with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. Established at a meeting convened by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations and the Union of Orthodox Rabbis in Oct. 1914 to help Jews suffering as a result of the outbreak of World War I. After the war, the Central Relief Committee shifted its attention from providing economic relief to Orthodox Jewry overseas to preserving its religious and cultural identity. CRC supported hundreds of yeshivot in Europe and Palestine through 1950, when its affiliation with the JDC ceased. The Federated Council of Israel Institutions succeeded the CRC.
