Join Brit Tzedek in Washington, DC
NATIONAL ADVOCACY DAYS
June 18-20, 2006


Our efforts are making a difference:
  • 108 Members of Congress signed the Hyde-Capps letter, thanking Condoleezza Rice for her work in bringing Israel and the PA together to broker an agreement on Rafah

  • Nearly 400 Rabbis signed a letter to President Bush asking him to constructively engage with moderate Palestinians and give humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people
Now it's time for you -- our grassroots -- to take our message to Washington, DC.
