Advocacy and Engagement in a Vibrant, Diverse City
AJC San Francisco 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 San Francisco 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.
We are situated in one of our nation’s most innovative and diverse cities. The Bay Area is at the forefront of technology and new ideas that are changing the way we think about our world. Our advocacy and programming reflect the spirit and opportunities of our community.
AJC San Francisco regularly engages in high-level diplomacy with the more than 35 countries that have diplomatic representatives in the city. Through pioneering interfaith and intergroup outreach, we build bridges of understanding with San Francisco’s Latino and Muslim communities. And our young professionals network, ACCESS San Francisco, brings together emerging Jewish leaders.

Diplomats Hanukkah: Shaping the Future of Global Jewish Advocacy
While our hearts are heavy from Hamas’ barbaric terrorist attack on the Jewish state, our resolve remains strong. AJC will continue to stand with our community here and shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and sisters in Israel. Our sincere hope is that you will find strength and comfort in your communities during this excruciating time.
Ha’-Tikvah, - “hope” - relies on the power and strength of tomorrow's leaders. Hanukkah commemorates a Jewish victory of resilience and the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem with a rekindling of light.
Please join AJC San Francisco and members of the Bay Area’s Diplomatic Corps for a Hanukkah program honoring exemplary young Jewish advocates who are lighting the way with hope for a safer Jewish and global future.
Honoring Yael Wulfovich Oberndorf, Mark Klebanov, and Ori Cohen
