We are based in DC. The AAJLJ is a nonprofit association representing the American Jewish legal community. We defend Jewish interests and human rights in the US and abroad.

Presence in: Israel, United States
Focus: Generalist Legal Services, Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Peace-building & Transitional Justice

As a voluntary bar association, we engage with legal issues that have an impact on the Jewish and broader world through the lens of Jewish values and tradition. The AAJLJ educates and advocates around critical issues such as: civil rights, human rights, access to justice, social justice, Israel and the Rule of Law, Holocaust issues, and Jewish Law. Through its members, the AAJLJ provides legal support to safeguard human rights. In addition, the AAJLJ works to combat those who attempt to use “lawfare” to stigmatize and delegitimize the State of Israel.
