AMCHA - The Coalition for Jewish Concerns

AMCHA - The Coalition for Jewish Concerns is an independent grassroots organization dedicated to raising a voice of conscience on behalf of endangered Jews around the world. This global effort includes countering anti-Semitism, advocating for Israel , preserving Holocaust memory, and other pro-Jewish activism.

AMCHA was founded by Rabbi Avi Weiss and like-minded colleagues, many of whom were leading activists in the movement to free Soviet Jewry. The tactics and principles emerging from that long struggle came to be known as spiritual activism and they have served as the driving force for AMCHA. Over the years AMCHA activists have been involved in hundreds of demonstrations, marches, vigils, hunger strikes, and acts of civil disobedience.

Amcha's diverse activities are inspired by the principle of Ahavat Yisrael, love of all Jews.
