Seven students from the Jewish High School of Connecticut (JHSC) traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Policy Conference. AIPAC is dedicated to a bipartisan, multicultural solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Participants attended several sessions a day and heard from political leaders including Secretary of State John Kerry, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Senator John McCain of Arizona. “We heard from people from the Latino, African American, and Palestinian communities. It was fascinating to hear such inspiring voices from across the political, geographical, and religious spectrum, said junior Batsheva Labowe-Stoll of New Haven.
Attendees included juniors Emma Judd of Hamden, Noah Frydman of Stamford, Batsheva Labowe-Stoll of New Haven, and Talia Weseley of Westport and seniors Shaina Gluckman of Norwalk, Amber Kitay and Shane Rand both of Stamford.
