The Atlantic Jewish Council is dedicated to enhancing the quality of Jewish life in Atlantic Canada and promoting the continuity of Jewish communities in the region.
We are committed to supporting the democratic State of Israel and its long-term viability. In particular, the Atlantic Jewish Council is committed to a secure and prosperous State of Israel with a vibrant social network.
About Our Charity
The major responsibilities of the AJC are Israel advocacy, community relations, fighting anti-Semitism, and promoting interfaith dialogue and multiculturalism. Through our Regional Chaplain, we attempt to provide some religious presence to those communities that can no longer sustain full-time rabbinical services. Shalom Magazine, published three to four times a year, brings our whole region together with news and views from Atlantic Canada.
Camp Kadimah is owned and operated by the AJC, and is considered to be one of Jewish Canada's foremost summer camps.
AJC acts as a spokesperson for our region on a local and national level to government and many Jewish and non-Jewish organizations. We conduct annual UJA campaigns and are responsible for implementing the Congress agenda through the region. We are an umbrella organization with responsibilities throughout the region for Canadian Zionist Federation, State of Israel Bonds, Canadian Young Judaea, and Canada-Israel Committee.
