Thank you for joining us!

For the first time ever, we took the premier global Jewish advocacy gathering online, from June 14-18, 2020!

Together we made history, bringing together more than 8,000 people from across the globe to hear from world leaders and issue experts on the most pressing challenges facing America, Israel, the Jewish people, and the world. Over the course of five days, we drew international attention, making headlines in the world’s leading news outlets, generating robust online discussions, and making our positions known to policymakers who tuned in from around the world to hear what AJC had to say.
