An AIPAC Reflection

We are blessed to live in a country that affords us the opportunity to harness our voices for Israel, not only as Jews, but as Americans. A safe and secure Israel is in America's interest and transcends parties and faiths. I am proud of so many in our community who raised their voices, made the trip to DC to say "Thank You" for America's enduring support and advocated for an even stronger partnership. The world needs each of us to join! If you have never been to Policy Conference, sign up today on and view the highlights of PC here.

Advocating for Israel, in the words of Ambassador David Friedman, it not about the Benjamins, but about the Davids, the Sarahs, the Christinas, the Marias and the Mohammads. Israel and America are beacons of democracy, liberty, hope, justice, innovation and revealing the Divine in all humanity. Each of us bears a responsibility to our shared history and common destiny. This is our moment. Get engaged in pro Israel Advocacy today! I hope to speak about the experience on Shabbat, April 6th, when we will be joined by visiting Tzahal Shalom Israeli soldiers. Stay tuned for numerous events in the upcoming months focused on Israel. Join us on Sunday, June 2nd in New York City for the Salute to Israel Day Parade. If you would like to be more involved, please reach out to me or Ben Lanson (, our Israel Advocacy Chair.

On a Pesach note, please take a moment to check out the array of Pesach information on our website and upcoming classes. Both Rabbi Zweiter and I are available with any questions. Forms for the sale of Chametz are available online and in the shul office and chapel.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Daniel Cohen
