During NATIONAL ADVOCACY DAYS
last year, 120 Brit Tzedek v'Shalom activists from across the
country converged in Washington, DC to take part in four intense
days of organizing, training, networking, and advocating
support of our pro-Israel, pro-peace message. For the
first time ever, the Grassroots Leadership Training Institute
and National Advocacy Days brought together the twin pillars of
Brit Tzedek's mission: organizing
American Jews and
advocating for a two-state resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict.And the impact in Washington has already been felt! In
