Founded in 1906, AJC seeks to protect the rights of Jews throughout the world; combats anti-Semitism and bigotry; works for the security of Israel; enhances human rights, democratic principles and intergroup understanding; and promotes the creative vitality of the Jewish people.

The Chicago Regional Office seeks to enact AJC's mission on a local level by advocating AJC's public policy agenda, building ties to the area's diverse racial, ethnic and religious communities, working with the Foreign Consular Corps and elected officials, and fostering Jewish unity.

The Chicago Regional Office, chartered in 1944, is one of 25 regional offices 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.
