AIPAC Policy Conference 2015

94 Maidens author/activist Rhonda Fink-Whitman attended her first AIPAC conference and she describes how uplifting, encouraging, and motivating it was!

Being in the same room as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and hearing him speak was a dream come true!  From Rabbi Delcau’s spiritual Havdalah service which kicked off our event to watching Bibi’s historic speech from inside the Capitol with “Team Temple Judea” it was a memorable and enlightening experience all the way!  Of the many things I discovered about Israel’s relationship with the US, the most important take away for me was that we are not alone in our love and support of the Jewish state.  Best of all, upon returning, I had the honor and pleasure of teaching my Confirmation Academy students everything I learned and having them conduct mock “lobby” efforts of their own.  The students enjoyed it immensely and said they were inspired to be future leaders of the Jewish community who will stand for Israel!  Some even asked if they could join us at AIPAC next year!  L’dor vador!” ~ Rhonda
