Over 130 Jewish Conservatives gathered for the 4th Annual Shabbat at CPAC program!
In addition to providing an invaluable opportunity for dozens of young Jewish activists to network and reconnect, Shabbat CPAC also featured special guests, including Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Rep. Lee Zeldin, Mark Levin, Harold Rhode, and Allen West. (The picture above is of a portion of the attendees after shabbat)
Thank you to all of our sponsors, supporters, and
volunteers for making this program possible!
Some scenes from CPAC: Jewish conservatives with possible presidential candidates Carly Fiorina and Sen. Ted Cruz
YJC co-founder Rabbi Ben Packer attended AIPAC, and can be seen here with Ariana Kaufman (L) and, along with Joel Griffith, with ZOA President Morton Klein.
Our friend Eric Golub reports from AIPAC: "About 50 anti-Israel protesters gathered in an area they were not supposed to be in to hurl anti-Semitic bile at Jews trying to peacefully assemble. The small mob was not all Palestinians. One elderly white leftist Jew tried to punch a man simply for trying to enter the building while wearing a Yarmulke.
What they did not count on was that the man wearing the skullcap was Ben Packer, a member of Young Jewish Conservatives. Like many conservatives, YJC people do not conflate diplomacy with surrender.
Packer punched back, and the leftist bully fled to another area. Liberal Jews would do well to heed this lesson."
