Jewish Journal: New Rabbi at Sinai, Lawmakers in Israel
By Ryan Torok
A bipartisan delegation of California state legislators visited Israel the week of July 24 to explore bilateral collaboration opportunities.
The group, chaired by Assemblyman Marc Levine, participated in dialogues and briefings organized by the American Jewish Committee’s (AJC) Project Interchange.
“I hope to share the connection the Jewish people have with Israel, the innovation and entrepreneurship Israelis bring to the world, including water conservation and technology, and the collaborative partnership Israel and California share,” Levine, a Democratic leader in Marin County and chair of the Legislative Jewish Caucus, said in a statement before the meetings.
