Over $35,000 Raised for Rep. Steve Cohen

October 14th, 2009

JStreetPAC is proud to announce that we have raised over $35,000 for Congressman Steve Cohen’s reelection campaign from over 300 JStreetPAC supporters, as he faces a tough reelection fight in his Memphis, TN district. Congressman Cohen has consistently demonstrated his pro-Israel, pro-peace credentials in Congress. As a lead signatory on a key letter backing President Obama’s balanced approach to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Cohen consistently advocates for strong American leadership to achieve a two-state solution. American leadership, from both President Obama and Congress, is sorely needed if we are to finally realize the dream of a safe, secure, Jewish, democratic Israel. We will continue to stand with members of Congress who share JStreetPAC’s commitment to secure Israel’s future through strong American leadership in pursuit of a two-state solution. Read More...

Why Do You Stand With J Street?

October 14th, 2009

J Street asked pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans why they stand with J Street as we work to achieve a two-state solution and secure true peace for Israel and the entire Middle East.  "My children were born in Jerusalem during the bus and cafe bombings of the second intifada.  J Street's powerful voicing of the majority opinion that strong US leadership is required to achieve a peaceful two-state solution gives me hope that Israeli children won't have to live through a time like that again." - Janette, Massachusetts  "I stand with J Street because as an American-born Jew whose father fought in WWII, I love Israel, and believe passionately in its right to exist, and also think that the path to guaranteeing a future of prosperity, peace and hope involves a two-state solution and reaching out to the Palestinians." - Stacey, New Mexico   Check out more testimonials here Read More...
