Eric Post has been appointed Director of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Long Island Region. He previously served as Associate Director of AJC’s New York Region, covering the city’s five boroughs.
“Eric Post has demonstrated a profound commitment to AJC’s mission, an ability to lead on implementing new initiatives, and collegiality,” said Melanie Maron Pell, Managing Director of AJC Regional Offices. “Notably, following the attack on Chabad of Poway, Eric created and spearheaded #TriStateAgainstHate, a successful campaign in which AJC offices in New York, New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester/Fairfield paired synagogue and mosque members to attend one another’s service.”
During his tenure at AJC New York Post oversaw interfaith and intergroup outreach to the city’s diverse communities, including managing the AJC-led local Latino-Jewish Coalition and Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council. In addition, Post oversaw the ACCESS NY young professionals’ program, as well as AJC New York’s annual campaign.
“Having grown up on Long Island it is quite meaningful to be returning,” said Post. “For nearly 20 years, I have been engaged with AJC’s nuanced, centrist, and thoughtful advocacy. I look forward to working with the AJC Long Island Board and supporters to further AJC’s legislative and diplomatic advocacy, and interfaith bridge building in Nassau and Suffolk counties,” said Post.
He received his B.A. and M.A. in International Affairs from The George Washington University.
