Participant testimonials from GLTI/NAD
Congresspersons, Senators, and
their aides were so emphatic about the necessity of having a
grassroots organization such as Brit Tzedek advocating in the
halls of Congress, that I could not help but be delighted with
what we had done! I will be there again next
- Joe Elinoff
We heard again and again from our
Congressional leaders on Capitol Hill: 'This is the voice we
wanted to hear! Keep doing what you're doing, and keep coming
- Yael Samuel
The thrill of having our
fledgling chapter in San Diego being highlighted because of Rep.
Susan Davis' sponsorship of the Mideast Peace Envoy resolution
will not be forgotten. Nor will the many new friends made in the
intense learning experience that was GLTI/NAD. Personally, my
learning curve shot straight up in the air.
- Marcia Patt
This year's advocacy days was one
of the most empowering experiences I have had in more than a
decade of working for a positive contribution to peace building
for Israelis and Palestinians.
- The only institute of its kind focused on training
pro-Israel, pro-peace activists to organize in the
American Jewish community for a two-state solution!
- Workshops and sessions designed to strengthen our grassroots
network, build your chapter, empower new
leaders, better deal with the media, and more
effectively communicate the pro-Israel, pro-peace message.
- Sessions will be available for both experienced and new Brit
- Opportunities to network with other Brit Tzedek
activists from around the country.
