How the AJC is making a difference

Anti-Semitism

AJC counters anti-Semitism in all its guises by calling on governments to act and by organizing coalitions with other faith and ethnic groups to forge a united front against hate. In the U.S., AJC conceived and helped establish the congressional Bipartisan Taskforce for Combating Anti-Semitism. AJC also launched the groundbreaking Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council, a bipartisan group of Muslim and Jewish leaders that works with elected officials to counter anti-Muslim bigotry and anti-Semitism in the U.S.

Radicalism and Extremism

To prevail in the fight against terrorism, AJC fights the spread of extremism in the Middle East, in Europe, and around the world. They shine a harsh spotlight on Iran’s role as the world’s foremost state sponsor of terror, promote counter-radicalism programs, and call out nations that subsidize the Palestinian leadership’s money-for-terrorism scheme. They do so by advocating for the European Union to label Iran’s main terrorist proxy, Hezbollah, as a terrorist organization.

Interreligious relations

The global leader in interfaith engagement, AJC cultivates respected and respectful alliances at the highest levels of national and international religious leadership. AJC represents the Jewish people at interfaith meetings and events in churches, mosques, temples, and seminaries.
