We, the undersigned, representing the organized Jewish community of Greater Kansas City, ask the City of Roeland Park to stand with our community against rising rates of antisemitism through the adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism.
Do you know an outstanding high school student who is interested in Jewish advocacy?
Leaders for Tomorrow (LFT) is designed to empower the next generation of young Jewish leaders to advocate on behalf of the Jewish people and Israel. LFT instills in teens the knowledge, confidence, and passion to serve as positive change-makers among their peers, in their communities, and beyond.
JCRB|AJC is currently accepting applications from outstanding rising high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors for the 2023-2024 KC LFT Cohort, beginning in Fall 2023.
American Jewish Committee (AJC) today expressed profound disappointment over the passage of the Reasonableness Standard Law in Israel.
The new law was pushed through unilaterally by the governing coalition amid deepening divisions in Israeli society as evidenced by the hundreds of thousands of Israelis who have taken to the streets. Of particular concern to AJC, the continued effort to press forward on judicial reform rather than seeking compromise has sown discord within the Israeli Defense Forces at a time of elevated threats to the Jewish homeland and has strained the vital relationship between Israel and Diaspora Jewry.
American Jewish Committee (AJC) welcomed the Biden administration’s release of the U.S. National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism.
The strategy is the first whole-of-government approach in the United States to counter antisemitism in its multiple and distinct forms and comes as studies by AJC and other Jewish organizations found an alarming rise in antisemitism and more American Jews feeling less secure.
