Expanding and deepening transatlantic ties
In 2002, supporting NATO expansion, AJC urged membership for Slovakia, along with Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. "By announcing early and loudly our support for NATO expansion, we are sending a very strong message," said AJC CEO David Harris. "This is a definitional moment in history and we don't want to be on the sidelines."
The opening of the Shapiro Silverberg Central Europe Office in Warsaw in March 2017 afforded AJC the opportunity to strengthen its friendship with Slovakia and its people. These ties are enhanced by AJC’s formal partnership agreement with the Union of Jewish Religious Communities in Slovakia and through regular meetings with Slovak officials held by AJC’s Brussels-based Transatlantic Institute and Warsaw-based Shapiro Silverberg Central Europe Office.
