Jewish geography at AIPAC


One of the nice aspects of the Policy Conference is meeting Israel supporters from other parts of the country and even playing a little Jewish geography. Today while waiting in line to register we met Don and Barbara Hoffman from Deerfield, Illinois, who have family at Bnai Amoona.

Then we started talking to a nice couple from New York. Not surprisingly, New Yorkers are all over the place, but these people complained that, considering how many Jews live there, so few come to AIPAC.

We wish we had more than 38 here from St. Louis, but I guess it is all relative.

Rick and Marcy Cornfeld are Co-Chairs of the St. Louis AIPAC Council and are blogging from AIPAC’s Policy Conference 2012 in Washington, D.C.
