Philadelphia / Southern New Jersey Regional Office

 AJC's mission is to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and to advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the world.  Our key areas of focus are:

- Working towards the elimination of anti-Semitism worldwide;
- Promoting shared democratic values;
- Supporting Israel's quest for peace and security;
- Advocating for energy independence;
- Strengthening Jewish life.

The AJC Philadelphia/Southern New Jersey regional office promotes these goals through a variety of initiatives.  We have longstanding intergroup/interfaith relationships within the diverse local area, including Latino, Catholic, Presbyterian, Evangelical, and Ukrainian communities.  In terms of advocacy, we have connections to regional representatives, and we also host a Diplomatic Liaison Initiative, in which local leaders are matched with Consuls from various countries.  In addition, our office hosts a robust suite of programming, aimed at various interest groups and also open to the public.
