The Arab-Jewish Community Center (AJCC)

The Arab-Jewish Community Center (AJCC)

The mission of the AJCC is two-part in nature. First, the AJCC increases cooperation and positive relations between its 3,000 Arab and Jewish members through diverse tolerance programming. Second, the AJCC enriches the Tel Aviv-Jaffa community and underprivileged populations with religious and cultural events; and arts, sports, technology, and language courses tailored to the needs of the community. Together, these two mission components fulfill an overarching goal at the AJCC: To create a cohesive, thriving Tel Aviv-Jaffa in the present and for the future.
