Welcome to AJC Cleveland

AJC is the global advocate for the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and for the advancement of democratic values for all. Through the bridges we build, the understandings we develop, through quiet diplomacy and effective advocacy, AJC is helping to build a safer, more tolerant world for ourselves, our children, and generations to come.

For almost 70 years, AJC Cleveland has been a thought leader, providing a unique voice and perspective in Northeastern Ohio. While much of our advocacy takes place quietly and behind the scenes, its impact is wide-ranging and significant. AJC Cleveland tackles the most pressing issues of the day in a deliberate, diplomatic, and thoughtful manner – educating and influencing on the issues that we care most deeply about as Americans and Jews. In Cleveland and around the world, AJC is a global voice for a global era.
