The WJC Jewish Diplomatic Corps is a flagship program of the WJC, and a worldwide network of 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.
"As the umbrella organization representing over a hundred Jewish communities worldwide, combatting racism, anti-Semitism and other forms of hate is at the core of who we are and what we do,” says Lauren Rose, WJC representative to the UN in Geneva.
“The World Jewish Congress is therefore asking, once again, for this Council to do more and put its focus where it belongs. Iran must be strongly and decisively condemned,” says WJC Jewish Diplomat Jenny Aharon.
Kyai Haji Yahya Cholil Staquf, General Secretary of the Indonesian Muslim Organization “Nahdlatul Ulama,” said Wednesday at a forum of the Israel Council on Foreign Relations, which operates under the auspices of the World Jewish Congress, “There can only be peace when there is rachma—an Islamic term that means compassion. Jews call it rachmanut but it is the same thing."
Over the course of the three-day mission, the WJC JDCorps visited Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa, and engaged with leaders of Israeli society in government, academia, media, faith communities, business and young leadership on issues including regional and security developments in Israel and the Middle East, models of coexistence, drivers of innovation and academic excellence, and Israel in the eyes of the international media.
WJC President Ronald S. Lauder: "This manifesto is a declaration of our promise to continue to defend and promote the world’s only Jewish state, and to stand by and assist in ensuring its bright and secure future"
