American Israel Public Affairs Committee
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee was established in 1954 by leaders of the American Jewish community who recognized that Israel's needs could not be satisfied by philanthropy alone. The economic, military and political support necessary for Israel''s survival could only come from the U.S. government. AIPAC''s mission ever since has been to nurture and advance the U.S.-Israel relationship, to assure that the ties are continuing and solid.
