Join us for our engaging speaker, David Bernstein, President and CEO of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, who will bring us up to date on current political issues in Israel and problems the country continually faces regarding how it is perceived by the rest of the world. David will also give us some concrete ideas as to how we can be advocates for Israel and support specific agencies in Israel. A question and answer session will follow. JCPA represents 125 Jewish community relations councils across the country and serves as an umbrella for the Jewish advocacy community in the US.

Before working for JCPA, David Bernstein worked for 13 years in management positions for the American Jewish Committee. During his time at AJC, David was a leading advocate for Israel on the legislative, diplomatic, media and inter-group relations fronts.
