Founded in 1906, AJC seeks to enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and to advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the world.

The Seattle Regional Office carries out AJC's mission on a local level by advocating AJC's public policy agenda, building ties to the region's diverse religious, racial and ethnic communities, working with diplomatic and elected officials, and fostering Jewish unity.

The Seattle Regional Office, chartered in 1945, is one of 25 AJC regional offices nationwide. Our innovative programs are steeped in both the principles of American democracy and the traditions and values of Jewish teachings. Our work consistently influences the agenda for the Seattle Jewish community.
