AJC New Jersey is a regional office of the national AJC organization

AJC's mission is to advance the peace and security of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide.  We advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the globe, through diplomacy, legislative advocacy, and by building effective interreligious and interethnic coalitions. AJC focuses on five priority issues of concern: Israel's peace and security, Iran's nuclear threat, anti-Semitism, advancing immigration reform and energy security.
