AJC Cincinnati connects our community with American Jewish Committee’s global advocacy work that enhances the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel. Our access to diplomats, elected officials, and interfaith leaders at the local level advances AJC’s broader global priorities: combating antisemitism, promoting Israel’s place in the world, and countering the spread of radicalism and extremism.
Our impact extends well beyond the Cincinnati community, helping AJC achieve tangible results in the form of government policies, formidable alliances, and hard-hitting legislation that make our world safer and more secure.
AJC Cincinnati engages in sustained advocacy with local and national government officials, creating substantive public programming, and developing long-standing relationships with many ethnic and faith communities, including the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Muslim, Latino, and Indian leaders.
AJC Cincinnati brings together civic leaders and local cultural, religious, and international communities for our three annual signature programs. Our yearly Community Intergroup Seder includes participants from all faiths and backgrounds. The AJC Cincinnati annual Thanksgiving Diversity Lunch commemorates our unique roots and shared values. And for more than 50 years, the Simon Lazarus, Jr., Human Relations Awards recognize deserving high school juniors and seniors for their community service efforts.
