Who We Are

AJC is the global advocacy organization for the Jewish people.

American Jewish Committee (AJC) stands up for Israel’s right to exist in peace and security; confronts antisemitism, no matter the source; and upholds the democratic values that unite Jews and our allies.

In the wake of Hamas’ brutal October 7 attack—the worst massacre of Jews since the Holocaust—AJC has mobilized its unparalleled global network to tackle the unprecedented threats facing world Jewry.
From world capitals to college campuses, AJC works with leaders across society to support Israel and combat surging antisemitism, and we leverage strategic communications to educate, counter misinformation, and shape public opinion.
