About

AJC New England is the local gateway to AJC’s global advocacy network. With a network of over 30 offices in the U.S. and around the world, AJC safeguards the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, while promoting human rights and democratic values for all. It achieves these purposes through high-level diplomacy, strong legislative advocacy, and effective interreligious and interethnic outreach. 

In New England, AJC is best known for its:

 

  • THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: AJC New England provides respected, trustworthy, and reliable thought leadership locally and globally. Because we take ideas seriously, know how to listen, and pay as much attention to how we speak as to what we say, AJC leaders are able to engage with those who we may not always agree and still be heard. This has proved crucial in advancing understanding of Israel’s unique circumstances, soliciting support for the fight against anti-Semitism, and building alliances dedicated to advancing democratic values and human rights.
  • ADVOCACY & DIPLOMACY: AJC New England engages world leaders, diplomats, and leaders from diverse political, civic, and religious life to advance peace in the Middle East, combat global anti-Semitism, promote democratic values and human rights, and further cooperation among diverse communities.
  • STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS: AJC New England builds strategic partnerships with regional community leaders and organizations that have local concerns and global interests. These collaborations enhance mutual understanding and advance shared commitments that ensure a more stable and just world.
