Greater MetroWest NJ teens share their experiences from the AIPAC Policy Conference

From March 26-28, a first-time ever group of 25 Greater MetroWest NJ high school students and their parents joined 18,000 pro-Israel supporters at the annual AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, DC. Thanks to a generous grant from The Herb and Milly Iris Youth and Family Philanthropy Endowment, federation paid the registration fees for all student participants, launching our inaugural Parent/Teen Cohort to Policy Conference. For many students, this was a new experience, introducing them to the strength of the U.S.-Israel alliance and the power of relationship-building. Here are their articles.
