AJC is the global advocate for the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and for the advancement of democratic values for all.

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.
