Midrashet Shalhevet girls lobby with AIPAC in DC


They spent three days learning about Israel’s relationship with the U.S. and how Israel needs people to stand up for it. They were given tools on how to stand against issues such as Hezbollah, Iran, and BDS and heard stories from peers and advisers about why they’re passionate about Israel and why it’s important to stand up against hate.

They lobbied at the office of Rep. Kathleen Rice where they spoke about these issues accompanied by other schools and programs.

The summit taught these MSH students about Israel and how to defend our Jewish state.

“I felt like I was really informed about the American-Israel Relationship and I learned a lot that I hadn’t known before,” said Spielman. Diamond said, “It was rewarding to watch how my students enjoyed and learned so much from this experience.” Austin remarked that “lobbying Congress was such a unique experience and I’m so thankful AIPAC gave me this experience and tools that I can use later in life.”
