About the Event
As part of its ongoing advocacy efforts on behalf of the community and the Jewish people, the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County invited State Senators, Representatives and their staff to the Federation campus to meet with Jewish community leaders in advance of this year’s legislative session in Tallahassee. Joined by professional and lay leaders from the Federation, its beneficiary agencies and other local organizations as well as the Israeli Consulate and federal offices, they gathered in Zinman Hall for the Legislative Sendoff to learn about the needs of vulnerable residents of Boca Raton and Delray Beach.
