The Atlanta Chapter's message of “Building Bridges of Understanding” has been advanced through extensive media outreach. Through this message, AJC has presented itself as the leading Jewish organization on issues of Pluralism, Israel and International Affairs, Contemporary Jewish Issues and Domestic Policy. This archive offers a glimpse into AJC’s exciting history.

Jewish Identity – AJC’s Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is the biggest  annual attraction for AJC. People from all over Atlanta experience Jewish culture through the magic of film. ACCESS, the young adult division of American Jewish Committee, fosters the growth of young Jewish leaders through social, leadership, and educational events. Media has publicized many of these events and honored many ACCESS leaders in the Atlanta Community.
