These students from the Stella K. Abraham HS for Girls of the Hebrew Academy of Long Beach in Hewlett Bay Park were among thousands of high school and college students, including many from Long Island, at this week’s AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington.
The girls were energized by the sense of community they found in joining with 18,000 people at the AIPAC event.
“It’s comforting to see that we’re not alone in our support of Israel,” said Student Council President Devorah Schreier. Michal Zelmanovitz said she loved the bipartisan atmosphere in which people with different political views can still bond over their love of Israel. And Talia Wein said she liked “seeing the diversity of the people here — all united for Israel.”
