Advocacy for a Younger Generation

ACCESS, AJC's Younger Generation Program, empowers Jewish young professionals to engage with today's critical domestic and international issues. At the nexus between the Jewish community and the world, ACCESS reaches out to diplomats, opinion makers and young leaders of diverse religious and ethnic backgrounds. We empower members to engage on Israel, Iran and the greater Middle East, and on challenges to civility, tolerance and democracy globally in a thoughtful and effective way.

At ACCESS we believe a younger generation is increasingly shaping public opinion and policy around the world and that it is vital that Jewish voices participate in the conversation.  We equip young Jewish leaders to stand at the forefront of this engagement and to be global agents of change.

European Responsibility to Protect Jews

BakerSome governments and political leaders have been reluctant to identify the victims as Jews or to identify the perpetrators as radical Islamists or even to call it anti-Semitism.


Is Germany Safe for Jews?

SIMONE RODAN-BENZAQUEN The safety of Germany's Jewish community cannot rest on law enforcement measures alone. In democratic Germany, Jews are only secure when the broader society sees anti-Semitism as an attack on democracy.


Building Understanding and Cooperation Across Faiths

We have the marines guarding our embassies, and Israel knows something about security. Who would provide similar protection to Jewish schools and synagogues?
