My experience with Brit Tzedek was both exciting, educational and filled with new experiences. It was the first time I had found a group sharing both my concern about the stalled peace process and an understanding of the role of the United States in making it happen. It was also my first experience of lobbying and my first attempt at organizing for a political cause.
I especially appreciated the relaxed nature of our communications and gatherings and felt comfortable as many members were similar to me in background and at least somewhat close in age.
I went on to work with J Street becoming a co-chair in South Florida, but due to a shift in approach and style I never quite felt the same sense of belonging as I did with Brit Tzedek.
