Special AIPAC Mention

Our students are very involved with AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee) and recently hosted our second annual AIPAC Symposium for students from different schools across the tri-state area. We thank all the members of the Israel Awareness Commission who made the symposium a very successful event. We are proud to say that AIPAC has recognized their efforts in their most recent Publication: the High School Activist.

Here is an excerpt from the article:
          AIPAC-trained students at Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School in BrooklynNY organized an intensive, 4-hour political leadership seminar, which was attended by more than 150 students from eight Jewish high schools in theNew York tri-state area.
         AIPAC Early Engagement Director Eric Gallagher, AIPAC Senior National Field Organizer Michael Citron, and AIPAC-trained activist Joey Cohen-Saban led sessions focusing on current events in the Middle East, Capitol Hill, and how students can involve themselves in the American political process. As a result, students are already planning to engage their elected officials.
