RKYHS AIPAC Students Meet with Congressman Frelinghuysen

RKYHS students involved in AIPAC at school had the privilege to participate in a meeting with Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen, who represents the 11th district in New Jersey. After hearing remarks from Frelinghuysen, students had the opportunity for a Q&A session, in which they impressed the congressman with their educated and insightful questions about current events and timely issues.

The AIPAC group at RKYHS continues to be an active, vibrant student group, about whom Rep. Frelinghuysen commented “no community is more involved than the Kushner community.” The group meets weekly to plan political advocacy projects, host guest speakers, hear student presentations as well as participate in special trips. RKYHS consistently is one of the largest student delegations in the country at the annual AIPAC policy conference and has previously received the prestigious AIPAC National Early Engagement Exemplars Award, which recognizes the high school leaders who have done the most to advance AIPAC’s mission over the past year. The group’s faculty adviser Rabbi Richard Kirsch also received the Early Engagement Exemplar award given to leaders of student AIPAC groups.
