AJC New Jersey connects our community with American Jewish Committee’s global advocacy work to enhance 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 New Jersey, 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 New Jersey engages in advocacy with local, state, and national legislators and with diplomatic leaders in support of our core initiatives. In addition to participating in AJC’s national diplomatic outreach, we build one-on-one relationships with key countries’ UN ambassadors and consuls general stationed in New York.
Our innovative programming—our Expert Breakfast Series, parlor meetings, and exclusive donor events—bring AJC’s global mission to life at the local level.
