American Jewish Committee

On Tuesday (3/27), students met with Dr. Edward Rettig, Director of the Israel/Middle East Office of the American Jewish Committee one of the oldest Jewish advocacy organizations in the United States. The AJC's mission is "to enhance the well being of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide, and to advance human rights and democratic values in the United States and around the world.” During the visit, students discussed their trip experiences with Dr. Rettig and asked him several questions about the AJC and its work, along with several questions about his personal experiences living in Israel. Friends would like to thank Dr. Rettig for taking the time to visit with our group.
