JCRC DC Mission Addresses Critical Community Concerns
About the Event
A committed delegation of sixteen leaders of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County and its Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) headed to DC on May 16 for the Federation’s first community Mission to Washington. They spent two days learning with experts and advocating with their Members of Congress and U.S. Senators on issues of high importance to the Jewish community. And they returned even more committed to raising their voices for the most vulnerable among us.

Following briefings at Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), the Washington Institute and AIPAC, the group headed to Capitol Hill to speak with the U.S Senators and Representatives who serve our area regarding key areas of concern for our community.
“The Mission to Washington increased our effectiveness in speaking for those who need us,” said Anne Jacobson, Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County Board Chair. “It provided a valuable complement to our JCRC’s year-round local advocacy leadership on federal and state issues, and we plan to have annual Missions to DC, as we do to Tallahassee.”
