AJC's Africa Institute (AI) provides a platform for American Jewish leadership to learn about Africa and engage its leaders in the pursuit of common goals. It introduces senior African government officials and civil society leaders to Jewish audiences, both in meetings in the United States and in diplomatic missions to the region. The Institute frequently partners with African diasporas in the United States to build coalitions and share the Jewish advocacy experience. It also facilitates technical exchanges between African countries and Israel in areas such as agriculture, public health and water management, selecting visiting missions from Africa to explore common projects with their counterparts in Israel.

Eliseo Neuman is the Director of the Africa Institute.
