Founded in 1906, American Jewish Committee (AJC) is the leading global Jewish advocacy organization. Our mission is to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and to promote democratic values for all.
With key relationships at the regional, national, and international levels—from diplomats, to global decision-makers and community leaders —AJC is the preeminent global Jewish advocate.
The AJC Palm Beach office engages diplomats, elected officials, corporate leaders, and interfaith partners throughout Florida to advance AJC’s broader global priorities: combating antisemitism; promoting Israel’s safety, security, and legitimacy; and countering the spread of radicalism and extremism.
One of twenty-five U.S. regional offices, AJC Palm Beach is an integral component of the AJC global architecture, delivering tangible results such as new government policies, formidable alliances, and hard-hitting legislation. Our local partnership of professional staff, distinguished board of directors, and extraordinary lay leadership generates positive outcomes extending well beyond the Palm Beach community—connecting the local to the global.
Laurence Milstein was named regional director of AJC Palm Beach County after eight years at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), most recently as director of corporate development in the Florida Regional Office.
