|When we started the Coalition for Jewish Values a little over 3 years ago, we knew that there was a void that we aimed to fill — simply by standing up for our values and how they inform American public policy. We didn’t realize how many people would come forward, enthusiastic about this concept and anxious to see our organization make a difference both nationally and in their home states. Whether you are an established activist, have been looking for the opportunity to be involved in the political/public policy space, or are a rabbi or non-profit executive who wants to grow your shul or organization and learn how to defend your interests, we want to help you be more effective in your efforts.|
We have partnered with the Leadership Institute, the nation’s leading training center for conservative activists, to offer a three-session course on the public policy process. We plan to offer this over Zoom on Monday afternoon or evening, June 15-29, depending upon the best time slot for most who sign up. The 3 sessions will run as follows:
Session 1, June 15: Creating and growing a grassroots local organization
Session 2, June 22: Media relations, op-eds, letters and other methods to publicize your views
Session 3, June 29: Education and influence in state government, to change policy for the better
The leadership Institute was created by Morton Blackwell in 1979, and has trained Senators, Congressmen and countless media figures since that time. It has made a profound impact due to his goal of emphasizing the movement, rather than his organization. And they have been very generous with their training and guidance since the inception of the CJV. We literally could not bring you a better team to help you in our mutual efforts.
If you would like to attend this training, it is critical that you register now, so that we can set the final time in a way that is most likely to meet with your schedule. We look forward to having you!
Thank you, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. Yours Sincerely,
Rabbi Yaakov Menken
