AJC New York 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 the New York community, 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.
Members of New York’s diplomatic community, elected officials, and prominent clergy and intergroup leaders consider AJC a trusted and respected advocate not only for the Jewish people, but for all people. At meetings, programs, and events, we speak out strategically and effectively to promote AJC’s agenda.
AJC New York translates the global mission of AJC to the local level by organizing intimate briefings and educational and advocacy programs. We host a range of larger-scale events to engage the local diplomatic community, such as a Diplomatic Seder and a Diplomatic Tour of Jewish New York. Our Dialogues with Diplomats series bring together diplomats to discuss timely foreign policy issues, our Rabbis’ Roundtable series provides clergy an opportunity to discuss relevant issues in the Jewish community, and our Counselors’ Council breakfast series provides continuing legal education to attorneys on topics related to AJC’s mission. In addition, AJC's ACCESS NY initiative empowers young Jewish leaders throughout New York. Learn more about ACCESS NY.
