The August 23 Congressional primaries are vitally important and include our two Westchester Congressional districts: NY-16 and NY-17.

AJC (American Jewish Committee) is a non-partisan organization, and we do not rate or endorse candidates. Our candidate’s questionnaire and meetings are in accordance with IRS guidelines. We endeavor to find common ground across the political spectrum to address antisemitism, advance pluralism and ensure equal rights for all, and promote Israel’s security and full integration in the community of nations.

AJC Westchester/Fairfield is hosting “Meet the Candidate” meetings* (webinar format) so that you have the opportunity to hear directly from Congressional candidates themselves.


We have invited all the candidates. So far we have scheduled the following meetings and hope you will join us. As more meetings are confirmed, this page will be updated.
