What We Do

A Global Response to Global Challenges

AJC's mission is to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and to advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the world. We promote these goals through an agency-wide focus in four key areas:

  • Diplomacy: Through high-level diplomatic meetings, and by leveraging strong relationships with global leaders, AJC gains the support of decision-makers around the world on issues critical to a strong Jewish future.
  • Legislative advocacy: We advocate with political leaders at the regional and national levels for domestic policies and legislation that advance Israel’s security, the well-being of Jews, and democratic values.
  • Building bridges: We build important alliances across diverse ethnic and religious groups in order to work together more effectively in support of democratic values and human rights for all.
  • Communications: AJC’s unparalleled global media presence reaches more people in more countries and in more languages than any other Jewish organization. Staff experts and lay leaders regularly appear worldwide in traditional print, electronic media, and in prominent blogs.
