On Sunday, March 1, 2020, a delegation of 20 Temple Har Shalom congregants, our largest group ever, traveled to Washington DC to participate in this year’s AIPAC Policy Conference. We will join more than 18,000 diverse Jews and non-Jews, Americans and world citizens, politicians, clergy, activists, teens, college students and passionate participants whose only desire is to fortify and celebrate the unique bi-partisan relationship shared between the United States and Israel. Since its founding in 1963, AIPAC has only one mission and that is to promote the U.S.-Israel relationship. The AIPAC Conference represents the largest gathering of Democrats and Republicans in the entire country. Throughout its history, AIPAC has worked tirelessly to avoid taking political sides and declaring favoritism either in America or in Israel. Its only agenda item is to secure support for the safety and security of Israel which benefits both nations.
I am most proud to be a member of our congregational delegation, all of who are fulfilling our duties as Americans to participate in the political process as we embrace the opportunity to be challenged to think constructively and to appreciate the sacred work of all participants, regardless of which side of the political divide they sit. If only all of those who seek to lead our nation could help to foster and promote the sacred work of AIPAC.
Rabbi Randi Musnitsky, D. Min.
