The Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey held another Legislative Advocacy Day at congressman Bill Pascrell’s office (NJ 9th).

As representatives of the Jewish Federation, our group had the opportunity to advocate and present a multitude of concerns and interests, including having a long conversation about the rise in incidences of hate and bias both close to home and across the nation. Discussed at length was the special relationship between the United States and Israel and the technological cooperation between the two nations.

Congressman Pascrell was generous with his time and stressed the importance of this meeting being only the first part in an ongoing dialogue with our Jewish Federation.

The Jewish Community Relations Committee holds in-person meetings with public officials a few times per month.

Please join the next legislative meeting with Assemblywoman Annette Chaparro on Tuesday, April 30, at 9:30 a.m. Please contact Ariella Noveck at [email protected] or (201) 820-3946. Space is limited.
