About Us

American Jewish Committee (AJC), established in 1906 by a small group of American Jews deeply concerned about pogroms aimed at Russian Jews, determined that the best way to protect Jewish populations in danger would be to work towards a world in which all peoples were accorded respect and dignity.

Over 100 years later, AJC continues its efforts to promote pluralistic and democratic societies where all minorities are protected. AJC is an international think tank and advocacy organization that attempts to identify trends and problems early - and take action. Our key areas of focus are:

  • Combating anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry;
  • Promoting pluralism and shared democratic values;
  • Supporting Israel's quest for peace and security;
  • Advocating for energy independence;
  • Strengthening Jewish life.

The Chicago Chapter, chartered in 1944, is one of thirty-two chapters nationwide. Our innovative programs are steeped in both the principles of American democracy and the traditions and values of Jewish teachings. Our deliberations consistently influence the agenda for the American Jewish community.
