However, I also believe that Israel, like all countries, is not perfect. I went into my AIPAC experience hopeful, but also a little nervous. Would it be super biased? Would I feel singled out for being more liberal? Would I be called anti-Israel (as I have been called…

My Very First AIPAC


By Aaron Benyamini, 9th grade The American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) Policy Conference  is a yearly event that attracts people from all different backgrounds for one cause — Israel. Being a teen, Policy Conference surprised me in many different ways. Most adults and teens I have talked to see this event to be political event. I view it differently. I see it as a tremendous amount of different kinds of people — Jews, Muslims, Christians, people of color, Republicans, Democrats, anyone —  coming from all around the world to support one cause. It is beautiful and very rare to…

The Power of a Story


From as early as I can remember, the Holocaust has always been a part of my life. By this I mean that I cannot remember a time where I did not know what the Holocaust was and what it meant for the Jews. This being said, nothing about the Holocaust or the Jewish narrative in World War II ever truly resonated with me. It was so long ago, and I live in such a safe environment for Jews, I never had to think twice.
