AJC Long Island Region Office

AJC's Long Island region office was founded in 1971. Our work is guided by the principle that the rights and freedoms of Jews and minorities are safe only when they are secure for all. To that end, our Office emphasizes activities that reach out in innovative ways to other faith communities and ethnic groups.Committed to a broad agenda including programming and advocacy on behalf of Israel's security, and the fight against anti-Semitism, human rights, intergroup relations, interfaith outreach and church/state issues, AJC Long Island is proud to be a driving force in enriching the quality of Jewish life locally and building bridges between the Jewish and the growing multi-faith community in our region.

AJC co-sponsors the Interfaith Clergy Committee of Long Island with the Long Island Council of Churches. We are founding members of the Long Island Immigrant Alliance.
