Every year, a group of MTA students joins Yeshiva University’s YUPAC lobby mission to Washington, DC., and this year was no different when YU held it annual trip this past week. Participating students had to practice their advocacy skills in advance, starting with a half-day training session held last Sunday, at which they prepared their talking points for this incredible opportunity. At the prep session, the boys learned about pressing issues that they would address in Washington regarding American-Israeli relations.

In all, eleven MTA students joined over one-hundred YU participants as they carried out their important mission in the capital. The boys first visited the AIPAC headquarters and then proceeded to Capitol Hill, where they cogently made their points to congressional aides and staffers. The trip concluded with an information session at the nearby Israel Embassy. The students wish to thank Mr. Sragow and Mr. Leshaw for accompanying them on the trip.
