AIPAC is a 100,000-member grassroots movement of activists committed to ensuring Israel’s security and protecting American interests in the Middle East and around the world. AIPAC’s priority is to ensure that both America and Israel remain strong and that they collaborate closely together.
"One of the many things that I admire about AIPAC is that you fight for this common cause from the bottom up. The life-blood of AIPAC is here in this room; grassroots activists of all ages, from all parts of the country who come to Washington year after year to make your voices heard."
"I'm here to say thank you. Thank you for your commitment and thank you for your willingness to come to town and--and to--and to press your cause."
"I thank you for supporting AIPAC, because as active citizens you are serving an essential function. When you advocate, when you lobby, when you speak out for issues that matter to the Jewish community and to Israel, you are speaking also on behalf of issues that are important to the larger community of Americans."
"Never in AIPAC's history have so many of you, leaders, advocates, students and concerned citizens, gathered to make your voices heard. Your tireless activism has made you an unparalleled force, not only in this town, but throughout the country and the world."
"AIPAC's work has always been important. But now more than ever, it is vital, not only to Israel but also to America, as both nations face similar adversaries and challenges. To all of you at AIPAC, for your years of service, we are all in your debt."
"Lawmakers depend on AIPAC for good, honest information and that's exactly what we've gotten."
Described by The New York Times as "the most important organization affecting America's relationship with Israel,” AIPAC advocates for U.S. cooperation with Israel on a wide range of issues. From promoting peace between Israel and its neighbors to facilitating U.S.-Israel exchanges of expertise and equipment for homeland security, defense and counterterrorism to collaborating on technology, science and agricultural products, AIPAC is there to encourage the close working relationship between the countries.
AIPAC is registered as a domestic lobby and supported financially by private donations. The organization receives no financial assistance from Israel, from any national organization or any foreign group. AIPAC is not a political action committee and it does not rate, endorse or contribute to candidates.
AIPAC’s mission is to strengthen the ties between the United States and its ally Israel to the mutual benefit of both nations.
AIPAC empowers pro-Israel activists across all ages, religions and races to be politically engaged and build relationships with members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to promote the U.S.-Israel relationship.
AIPAC and its members have successfully worked with members of Congress to promote peace between Israel and its neighbors, facilitate U.S.-Israel exchanges of expertise and equipment for homeland security, defense and counterterrorism, and ensure the Jewish state has the means to defend itself.
