Founded in 1952, and with more than 700 member families to date, the hallmark of the Miami and Broward Office of AJC is recognized for its diverse programs designed to enhance Jewish learning and identity as well as numerous interfaith and interethnic activities. Internationally, we work to advance human rights, combat terrorism and aid in the quest for peace in the Middle East.

Our guiding principles center on the belief that:

  • confrontations between people and groups occur due to a lack of knowledge
    and understanding
  • positive relationships with political, religious and communal leaders, built on mutual respect and understanding, can overcome conflict
  • steps should be taken to diffuse confrontation through mediation before relations
    become strained
  • in a democracy, the rights of Jews are protected only when the rights of all people
    are protected
  • working behind the scenes and through diplomatic means builds positive relationships and bridges with ethnic communities in Southeast Florida as well as with foreign representatives
