Each year, AIPAC, 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 across the country 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 student got a chance to meet congressmen and women and received access to a tour of the Capitol building. During the program sessions, students were prompted to express their thoughts on why such a program attracted them, and why they thought it was important to lobby for Israel. This trip was only one aspect of DRS’s longstanding commitment to the State of Israel.
