AJC Westchester/Fairfield connects the local community with AJC’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 anti-Semitism, promoting Israel’s place in the world, and countering the spread of radicalism and extremism.
Our impact extends well beyond the Westchester/Fairfield 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.
AJC Westchester/Fairfield exposes more than 4,000 people to AJC's critical work through over 140 educational programs and advocacy initiatives each year. The region’s proximity to New York City allows us unparalleled access to top-notch experts, diplomats, political leaders, and public intellectuals.
We pride ourselves on the lay/professional partnership that makes our work possible. Eleven volunteer committees—on topics such as diplomatic outreach, interfaith relations, and Israel—produce high-level, engaging programs, including our Thanksgiving Diversity Breakfast, the annual AJC Westchester/Fairfield Gala, and the annual Westchester Jewish Film Festival.
We also host a biweekly radio show, “AJC Live,” which carries on-air interviews about AJC’s priority issues, often with a local connection. You can listen live from 12:00-1:00 p.m. on the first and third Mondays of each month on WVOX 1460 AM (a Whitney Global Media station) and visit the “AJC Live” archive to hear past shows.
