On 27 March 2017, AJC opened its newest international office in Warsaw. The Shapiro Silverberg AJC Central Europe Office is AJC's fifth office in Europe, and is dedicated to seven Central European countries: the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Slovakia. In Europe, AJC also has offices in Berlin, Brussels, Paris, and Rome. AJC Central Europe is an integral part of the Paris-based AJC Europe.
