2013 Virginia Goes to Washington
Over two dozen Virginians joined JCRC in advocating on Capitol Hill for top domestic and international concerns of the Jewish community. Partnered with the Jewish Federations of Northern America, representatives from Greater Washington Jewish agencies: JCA, JSSA, JFGH and the Federation as well as a representative from the Federations of Tidewater and the Virginia Peninsula joined in calling for support of the Older Americans Act and the charitable tax deduction, strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship and sanctions on Iran. The group met with representatives from the State Department and Senator Warner and Kaine's offices, with Congressmen Frank Wolf, Gerry Connolly and with Tom Garafalo, foreign affairs aide to Congressman Jim Moran. In preparation for the program, JFNA and AIPAC provided policy briefings.
