In the face of skyrocketing anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hate toward the Jewish state and the Jewish people, AJC CEO Ted Deutch reminds the world that the global Jewish community—with its strength and unity—will rise above the bigotry. As Ted says, "We don't need permission to be proud Jews and Zionists."

Ted also announced the establishment of two groundbreaking initiatives: the Center for Education Advocacy, which aims to transform educational environments and prepare young Jews to be leaders in high school, college, and beyond, and the Center for a New Middle East, which is dedicated to advancing Israel’s role in the Middle East, North Africa, and beyond.
