Biographical / Historical

The American Jewish Committee (AJC) seeks to advance the peace and security of the Jewish people around the world. Through high-level diplomacy, strong legislative advocacy, and effective interreligious and interethnic coalitions, AJC has made a significant impact on issues critical to the Jewish people. With key relationships at the regional, national, and international levels—from diplomats, to global decision-makers and community leaders —AJC is the preeminent global Jewish advocate. Founded in 1944, AJC's Atlanta Regional Office works to bridge the gap between the Atlanta Jewish community and other ethnic and faith based communities.
