JCRC Holds Monthly Legislative Advocacy Day With Congressman Gottheimer

(Courtesy of JCRC) On Tuesday, July 2, members of Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey met with Congressman Josh Gottheimer. The meeting was part of the Jewish Community Relations Committee’s monthly Legislative Advocacy program, through which members of Jewish Federation meet with state and national lawmakers at their local offices. The Jewish Federation attendees advocated for many key concerns, including the need for bipartisan support for Israel. Cong. Gottheimer stressed the importance of keeping continued congressional support for Israel a bipartisan imperative. He also spoke about the growing problem of anti-Semitism both locally and globally.

Gottheimer expressed, “Anti-Semitism is a problem. Hate is a problem. It is a growing problem at home,” adding, “We need to focus on the big issues.”
