American Jewish Committee
Founded in 1906, the American Jewish Committee (AJC) works to combat anti-Semitism and bigotry and promote democratic pluralism across the globe. Concerned with the continued flourishing of the global Jewish community, the AJC advocates for the rights of minorities worldwide and peace and security for the state of Israel. Internationally the organization uses forums, exchange programs, and research initiatives to build networks among policymakers, community leaders, and others with similar interests. The AJC’s domestic policy division addresses religious liberty issues in areas like education and employment, as well as broader issues like immigration and energy independence. In the United States the AJC also works to revitalize Jewish community life, nurture the next generation of Jewish leaders, and reinforce ties between American and Israeli Jews. Interfaith dialogue and cooperation is another component of many of the AJC's human rights initiatives.
