Jewish High School of Connecticut students attend American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference

WOODBRIDGE -  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.  For more information call 203-764-1608 or go to www.jhsct.org
