NORPAC Hosts Senator Jim Risch (R-ID) in Englewood

(Courtesy of NORPAC) On a recent Sunday evening, Dr. Richard and Sara Schlussel, with event co-chairs Avi & Elizabeth Samuels, hosted Senator Jim Risch (R-ID) for a NORPAC event in Englewood.

Senator Risch is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which works to advance the interests of American citizens and businesses in international trade and investment, promoting exports and guarding international interests. Practically all Israel-related legislation falls under this committee’s oversight.

In just a few short months as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee in 2019, Senator Risch made his presence known in the pro-Israel community by leading the effort to pass S. 1, the bill to authorize aid to Israel and combat efforts to delegitimize and isolate Israel around the globe. The bill received broad bipartisan support and passed in just a few months.

Senator Risch will be up for re-election in November 2020.
