With the support of The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the 15 students met congressmen and their legislative aides, as well as Tevy Troy, former liaison to the American Jewish community for President George W. Bush; Jay K. Footlik, liaison to the American Jewish community for President Bill Clinton and advisor to the Kerry/Edwards campaign; and Aviva Raz-Schechter, minister-counselor at the Embassy of Israel in Washington, DC.

Topics of discussion included Israel’s disengagement plan and the threat of Iran’s nuclear proliferation.

“It was one of the most meaningful experiences I have ever had,” said Hindy Poupko, president of Stern’s Israel Club. “I felt empowered by knowing that I can have a real affect on Congress and ultimately, the US-Israel relationship.”

Sponsored by the College Democrats, the Israel Club, the Republican Club, the Joseph Dunner Political Science Society, and the Stern College for Women Student Council, the mission was supported by a grant from The Avi Chai Foundation.

“I am sure that our discussions increased awareness and appreciation for Israel’s current situation amongst a slew of congressional offices,” said Dovid Wildman, president of the YC Israel Club. “Most importantly, we had an opportunity to forge new relationships and make impressions that may have significant ramifications in the future.”
