Each year the American Israel Public Affairs Committee partners with select Jewish day schools, synagogues, national youth groups and teen leadership organizations to bring 400 student leaders from to Washington, DC, for Israel advocacy and political activism training.
This year, DRS sent a delegation of four students to Washington for the three-day conference. The program helps mentor, train and educate high school students committed to strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship through the American political process.
The students met with members of Congress and participated in a tour of the Capitol.
During sessions, students were prompted to express their thoughts on what attracted them to such a program and why they thought it was important to lobby for Israel. This trip was only one aspect of DRS’s long-standing commitment to the State of Israel.
