On May 8th, 2015, AJC Los Angeles held its 70th Annual Meeting at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel with nearly 200 attendees. Dean Schramm, Regional President of AJC Los Angeles, delivered an impassioned speech on combating anti-Semitism at home and abroad and standing up against the delegitimization of Israel on American university campuses: “Anti-Zionism has become a legitimate form of political discourse; this must stop. This we must fight against. I am a Zionist and I say so proudly.”


The leadership of AJC Los Angeles elected new officers and board members for the 2014-15 year. Reeve Chudd, an AJC LA Board Member who has served as chair of the Development Committee, was elected as one of the Los Angeles Region’s Vice Presidents.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Member Christopher Coons, the keynote speaker, briefed the attendees on recent developments in the U.S.-Israel relationship, Congressional efforts to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran, and the rise of anti-Semitism throughout the world. The Senator fielded questions from AJC members and guests in the audience, who received a unique and valuable perspective from a senior elected official deeply embedded in the issues our community cares about.  CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
