Review for AJC Access, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AJC is an amazing organization, participation in AJC's trip to New Orleans last semester changed the way I looked at the world, my role as a Jew, and my confidence in my capacity to effect change.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how I now view Jewish interests such as reaching out to other ethnic minority groups, tikkun olam, diplomatic efforts etc. which I didn't give much credence to beforehand.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give it more Orthodox employees/participants because it is definitely skewed to the left and I think that would even it out a little. It claims to protect the interests of all Jews and should try to understand the Orthodox community's interests also.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Due to my positive experience with the AJC I decided to initiate an AJC chapter on my campus, Stern College of Yeshiva University, to promote more Orthodox representation/participation/knowledge of the organization, for it serves the interests of all Jews

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Really wonderful, sincere, inspiring people who seemed totally committed.

Ways to make it better...

it had been easier to get my kashrus needs met as an Orthodox Jew, I had to push a little in order for this to occur when I was attending their New Orleans volunteer trip. Ultimately, they came through beautifully.
