Jewish Federation Legislative Forum

jfsjv attendeesI recently attended a legislative forum in South Bend hosted by the Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley. The discussion ranged from Daylight Saving Time to the impact of last year’s budget bill on property taxes.

While positions on political issues vary widely in the Jewish community, the St. Joseph Valley Federation teams up with the Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council to advocate for issues that concern their community as a whole. Their 2005 legislative wrap-up can be found here.

I was glad to be joined by Senator John Broden (D – South Bend), Representative Jackie Walorski (R – Lakeville), Representative B. Patrick Bauer (D – South Bend), Senator Anita Bowser (D – Michigan City), and Representative Tim Neese (R – Elkhart).

If your community organization is thinking of hosting a legislative forum, feel free to let me know.
