Thank you for joining us at AJC Virtual Global Forum 2021!

From June 6-9, 2021, AJC took the premier global Jewish advocacy event of the year online!

Together we made history, bringing together thousands of 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 four days, we examined how to combat rising antisemitism, promote Israel’s place in a reimagined Middle East, and restore a deeply divided America. 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 how AJC is reimagining what’s possible.
