At JCPA, we believe the best way to ensure Jewish safety is by building bridges and building coalitions, even (especially!) if it means working with people we sometimes disagree with. That’s why our CEO Amy Spitalnick accepted Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s invitation to participate in a webinar and speak with her and all those who follow her on social media on the topic of antisemitism.

Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove of Park Avenue Synagogue called their conversation “the most refreshing 30 minutes on YouTube I have ever experienced,” but you should see for yourself. Watch it below.

If you agree that conversations like these are important for building the coalitions we need to counter antisemitism and hate in all its forms, please share it using the buttons below.
