Shabbat shalom HaNegev!
What better way to get ready for Shabbas than to sign up for AIPAC Policy Conference as a member of the USY delegation?
For those of you who don’t know, AIPAC is the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. This is the most important pro-Israel lobbying group in the country, meaning its members form relationships with members of Congress so that they vote for legislation that supports Israel’s important relationship with America.
Policy Conference is AIPAC’s biggest event. Held in DC from March 2-4, it brings together over 13,000 pro-Israel activists from all over the country. 2000 of these people are students! Past speakers have included Barack Obama, George Bush, Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, and President Shimon Peres.
Highlights of the program include the AIPAC Policy Conference Gala, where delegates have the opportunity to dine and mingle with lawmakers, administration officials and diplomats. This is an unparalleled opportunity to network with other political leaders. At the close of the conference, you are invited to visit Capitol Hill to speak with your member of Congress about the importance of American support for Israel and other pressing issues facing the Middle East.
The cost is $249 for the conference, plus travel to and from DC. USYers will stay with Seaboard USYers at home hospitality. This is an AMAZING rate.
