The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) has endorsed Bill Pascrell, Jr.’s campaign for re-election to Congress.
“Our district is blessed to have some of the largest and most vibrant Jewish communities in the whole United States, and I have been honored to stand with them throughout my career.” said Congressman Pascrell. “We are particularly proud of our work to protect our synagogues and community centers from harm, to fight the rise of dangerous anti-Semitic extremism, to build understanding between communities, to promote the hard-working, progressive values of Jewish Americans, and to consistently support Israel and preserve America’s bonds with that great land. I welcome the JDCA’s endorsement and will never fail to support our Jewish neighbors.”
JDCA actively promotes policy consistent with socially progressive, pro-Israel, Jewish community values.
“At this critical inflection point in our nation’s history, we are helping to elect Democrats who share our values, such as fighting for social and racial justice,” said JDCA executive director Halie Soifer. “The most effective way to bring about change in our country is by electing people who share your vision for the future, and that’s exactly what JDCA is doing in 2020.”
JDCA seeks to energize the Jewish electorate and maintains a commitment to positive change through information sharing, issue advocacy, rapid response and research, messaging, briefings, and other activities to increase Jewish community engagement in policy and support elected officials and candidates who share its values. JDCA advocates for domestic and foreign policy positions aligned with its platform, which reflects values such as social equality, justice, Tikkun Olam (healing the world), and a strong U.S.-Israel relationship. JDCA is led by a national board representing Jewish community leaders from across the country.
