- Jewish High School of Connecticut juniors Emma Judd of Hamden and Batsheva Labowe-Stoll of New Haven were among four students who
traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the recent annual American Israel Public Affairs
Committee, or AIPAC, Policy Conference, according to a release.
"AIPAC is dedicated to a bipartisan, multicultural solution to the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict," the release said.
"Participants attended several sessions a day and heard from
political leaders including Secretary of State John Kerry, Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Senator John McCain of Arizona," the release said.
“We heard from
people from the Latino, African American, and Palestinian communities. It was
fascinating to hear such inspiring voices from across the political,
geographical, and religious spectrum, said
Labowe-Stoll, also in the release.
The Jewish High School of Connecticut
is NEASC accredited and serves grades 9-12.
