AJC New Jersey connects our community with AJC’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.

Religion: Cause or Cure for America’s Divides? A Conversation with Eboo Patel
Despite waning religious affiliation, faith continues to influence the culture and character of American society. Extremist Christian nationalism has fueled seditious violence, antisemitism, and other forms of hate. And yet, each day, religious leaders, both progressive and conservative, work to overcome the dangers of tribalism on the left and the right. Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council (MJAC) member Dr. Eboo Patel, the founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core, joins us to discuss how faith communities can champion good and oppose evil, and assure that America’s diversity is not a liability, but rather, an asset.
