    This historical study describes the activities of the American Jewish Congress (AJC) in education to combat anti-Semitism and discrimination in education from 1946 to 1980. It examines selected cases in which the Congress was involved during this period. The study begins with the pioneering efforts of Rabbi Stephen S. Wise (1874-1949) to organize the Congress. The study then concentrates on the work of the Commission on Law and Social Action to identify and eradicate anti-Semitism at the secondary school and higher educational levels. The dissertation is divided into five chapters. Chapter I provides an introductory overview of the organization and structure of the American Jewish Congress. Chapter II examines the general opposition of the Congress to anti-Semitic movements. Chapter III examines AJC activities related to secondary education, especially those devoted to maintaining separation of church and state. Chapter IV is concerned with the AJC's efforts to identify and oppose discrimination in higher education. Chapter V presents a summary and conclusions. The historical method was used to analyze the special collections of the AJC which are deposited in the archives of the Spertus College of Judaica, in Chicago, Illinois.
