The African Jewish Congress is the co-ordinating body whereby the smaller Jewish communities
in Sub-Saharan Africa can retain their links with world Jewry. 

The focus of the AJC is:

  • To enable the smaller Jewish communities to give their members viable and vibrant Jewish  spiritual lives.

  • To co-ordinate the fight against anti-Semitism. 

  • To promote the interests of the State of Israel.

  • To give Africa and African Jews a voice in international Jewry through a proper forum. The African Jewish Congress is affiliated to the South African Jewish Board of Deputies and the World Jewish Congress. 

The Jewish communities with our long history in Africa and the Near East have a positive role to play in the blossoming African Renaissance.

The African Jewish Congress’ secretariat is based in South Africa.
