AJC Cincinnati connects our community with American Jewish Committee’s nonpartisan, global advocacy work. Our access to high-level decision makers at the local level enhances AJC’s broader engagement priorities throughout the world: countering antisemitism and the spread of radical extremism, opening doors to and for Israel, and advancing democratic values.
Our impact extends well beyond the Cincinnati community, helping AJC achieve tangible results in the form of government policies, formidable alliances, transnational collaborations, and community education that help shape a more dignified and peaceful future.
AJC Cincinnati engages in sustained advocacy with local and national government officials, honors civic leaders and social change-makers, organizes substantive public programming such as our annual Community Intergroup Seder, and develops long-standing relationships with many faith, ethnic and international communities.
We invite you to follow along and join the AJC Cincinnati regional office network for our yearly programs and gatherings by signing up for our monthly e-newsletter. If you’re interested in hosting AJC Cincinnati for a training on antisemitism and its implications on society and democracy, please reach out to our office.
