The Jewish Diplomatic Corps
The WJC Jewish Diplomatic Corps is a flagship program of the WJC, and a worldwide network of young Jewish professionals acting in the fields of diplomacy and public policy on behalf of world Jewry. At present, we have a cadre of over 200 members aged 27 to 45 from more than 40 countries, who are already accomplished professionals in their own rights. Members, known as Jewish Diplomats (JDs), include lawyers, community leaders, social media experts, venture capitalists, university professors, marketing specialists and entrepreneurs. Our objective is to represent and strengthen the Jewish communities worldwide, where our members are also taking up leadership roles. WJC Jewish Diplomatic Corps activities focus on advocacy on WJC core topics, such as interfaith relations, combating the delegitimisation of Israel, anti-Semitism and Holocaust legacy, as well as safeguarding human rights and minority rights.
