AJC is the preeminent Jewish organization dealing with international affairs in Los Angeles and around the world.  

Because of AJC’s well-earned reputation as a trusted partner, we have a unique opportunity to befriend, inform and advocate with the consuls general and their staff during their time in Los Angeles. The relationships we build enable us to communicate AJC’s concerns on issues of critical importance to the global Jewish community. 

Over the past decade, our International Relations program has fostered relationships with diplomats from Australia, Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Belize, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Korea, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Switzerland, Thailand, Togo, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.

Our efforts include countering the anti-Israel bias at the United Nations, combating the spread of violent anti-Semitism in Europe, supporting Israel in the face of rising terrorist threats from Hamas and Hezbollah, confronting Iran's nuclear and military threats, and advocating for the inclusion of Hezbollah on the EU terrorist organizations list.
