On May 12, 2015, Germany and Israel celebrated the 50th anniversary of the launching of diplomatic relations between the two countries. As part of the conference series “50/50 – German-Israeli Relations: The Next 50 Years,” the American Jewish Committee Berlin Ramer Institute and the German Federal Academy for Security Policy (BAKS) organized a German-Israeli security and foreign policy expert seminar, which took place on May 22, 2015 in the historic Schloss Schönhausen.

AJC President Stanley Bergman, on the evening prior to the conference, said, “AJC has long been dedicated to the support of strong German-Israeli relations, which have become ever more important with the instability throughout the Mideast […] AJC considers the German-Israeli-American relationship to be of paramount importance to our global interests.” To honor 50 years of diplomatic relations between Germany and Israeli, 16 AJC regional chapters in the U.S. held special events. On May 19, 2015, AJC was honored at a historic ceremony by the Israeli and German foreign ministries for the organization’s efforts in advancing German-Israeli relations.
