The mission was partially planned by alumna Racheli Weil ‘13. While in Washington, the group met with Mr. David McFarland, advisor to Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), to speak about the current volatile situation in Israel, the dangers of incitement by Palestinian leaders and the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement. Ms. Sarah Gordon, faculty advisor to MIPAC (Ma’ayanot Israel Political Action Committee), ran an advocacy training session for the students the day before their trip.
