Lobbying with AIPAC: The Opportunity to Make a Real Difference

Activism. The opportunity to make a difference is all around us. And I think I made it. Lobbying was exhausting. I spent the day with a huge smile plastered on my face and hadn’t introduced myself this many times since my very first NFTY event. My feet hurt, I was hungry, but I know I made a difference.

Alongside all of the standard Winter Kallaot, Junior Youth Group retreats, and Social Action weekends, one event particularly piqued my interest. Ohio Valley hosts a Study Kallah every year at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion at their campus in Cincinnati.
