Moses was the original Jewish political activist and lobbyist. He organized his thoughts and priorities, then went to the top powers to demand action.

Whether you are interested in fighting anti-Semitism, strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship or fighting for better public schools and jobs for people who have disabilities here at home, don’t leave civic engagement to special interest lobbyists.
This High Holy Days season coincides with National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), so now is a great time to reach out and enable people with disabilities to get the education, jobs and access they need to fully participate in their communities.
