Southern New Jersey outreach
The Philadelphia/Southern New Jersey office of AJC is working with many communities, building understanding and advocating together in areas of mutual concern and interest. This year, we have been partnering with the local JCRC in an effort to raise our visibility. Recently, we were contacted by Congregation Beth El in Cherry Hill to organize an AJC lecture series, the first being well-attended to hear AJC’s Anti-Semitism and Hate specialist, Ken Stern.
AJC is also involved in S. Jersey’s Middle East Institute for the first time in its 40-year history. Aaron Jacob, AJC’s Assistant Director of International Affairs, will be speaking on implications of the Iranian nuclear program, the UN security council resolutions adopted around this issue, the nature of Iran’s governing regime, and what can be done.
