J Street Comes to Los Angeles

Hosted by

AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, has long been the major lobby for Israel in Washington. Now it’s being challenged for influence by J Street, a Jewish-American group that’s pro-Israel but advocates an end to settlement building and the blockade of Gaza. J Street has offices in New York and several other cities and now in Los Angeles. Jeremy Ben-Ami is a 25-year veteran of government, politics and communication in the US and Israel, and the founding president of J Street.
