Founded in 1906, AJC seeks to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and to advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the world. Among Jewish advocacy organizations, AJC is the leader in the global arena. We are known for our unparalleled access to diplomats, government officials, and faith leaders in more than 100 countries. In addition to our New York headquarters and Office of Policy and Diplomatic Affairs in Washington, D.C., AJC has offices across the U.S. and around the globe and maintains partnerships with Jewish communities worldwide.

AJC has offices across the U.S. and around the globe and maintains partnerships with Jewish communities worldwide. AJC is currently enjoying a productive creative period under its dynamic new CEO, Ted Deutch. New initiatives include a significant investment in growing AJC’s presence in the Palm Beach County area.
