WJC Jewish Diplomatic Corps

The Jewish Diplomatic Corps of the World Jewish Congress (WJC JDCorps), is the flagship program of the WJC, and is a leadership development and diplomatic impact program.

At present, we have a cadre of 300 members aged 27 to 45 from 50 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, to ensure that Jewish communities around the world have a voice in global affairs today - and for decades to come. WJC JDCorps activities focus on advocacy on WJC core topics, such as interfaith relations, combating the delegitimisation of Israel, antisemitism and Holocaust legacy, as well as safeguarding human rights and minority rights.
