Young Leadership Membership

The AIPAC Young Leadership Division in New York offers young professionals in their twenties and thirties the opportunity to connect with their peers, learn about the issues confronting the U.S - Israel relationship, and develop key insights into how AIPAC helps keep both the United States and Israel safe and secure. It is the critical training ground for the next generation of pro-Israel advocates.

Our rich and vibrant program consists of off-the-record briefings with political analysts, journalists, and foreign policy experts, seminars with AIPAC senior staff, private receptions with elected officials, and exclusive social and networking events throughout the year. In addition we hold broadly attended annual activities, such as our Young Leadership Shabbat Dinner, Sunday Brunch, and Young Leadership Gala Dinner in June. Our programming provides members with the necessary tools for becoming effective, lifelong pro-Israel citizen activists.

In order to access this comprehensive programming and help safeguard the security of Israel, you must become fully engaged with the one organization that is consistently rated among the most influential lobbying organizations in Washington; make an annual minimum gift of $1,800 to join one of AIPAC’s club levels. As a Washington Club Member, you will be invited to special events during AIPAC’s annual Policy Conference in Washington, D.C., receive two seats at AIPAC’s Northeast Gala in January, and take advantage of premier status at the Annual Young Leadership Gala in June. At no additional cost, you will also get access to the AIPAC Northeast Region’s affinity group programming through our esteemed AIPAC Wall Street, Real Estate, and Technology Divisions.

AIPAC understands that the financial commitment required to become a Club Member may be out of reach for people just starting in their careers. With this in mind, we have established more accessible financial thresholds as steps towards future Club Membership. We hope that as you advance professionally within your chosen field, you will also grow as an activist and donor within AIPAC.

  • AIPAC Chai Society is a “bridge” for people in their twenties and thirties who donate $720 to AIPAC’s annual campaign. This level enables you to experience exclusive AIPAC Chai Society member events, at least one of the AIPAC Northeast Region’s affinity group events a year, and events co-sponsored by Young Leadership and affinity groups.

  • AIPAC Manhattan Society is open to professionals in their twenties who donate $360 annually. Joining several hundred AIPAC Manhattan Society members, you will have access to AIPAC events throughout the year.
