In Their Words

“The AJC’s Transatlantic Institute was founded during (one of those) bad moments... And we must truly be thankful to the American Jewish Committee... for having invested in our friendship right when we needed it the most.”

"I would like to express my interest and support for your initiative and work. In times of global tensions, it is indeed crucial to encourage and to share connections between historical partners. What feeds our special link is also common values regarding the respect for human rights, including the freedom of belief and the protection of minorities."

José Manuel Barroso, Former President of the European Commission
