On Friday, February 14, the JCRC hosted its Legislative Round Table Breakfast. Over 50 leaders from our community participated in this discussion, which provided the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with central Indiana state legislators.
Prior to the arrival of our state legislators, JCRC Government Affairs Director David Sklar gave a legislative briefing and Indiana General Assembly update to help prepare participants for their conversations. We then enjoyed breakfast and conversation together, not only communicating the Jewish community’s policy priorities for the 2014 legislative session, but also educating them about the range of programs and services offered by our Jewish agencies, synagogues and membership organizations. Senators Pete Miller, Jean Breaux and Greg Taylor and Representatives Christina Hale, Cherrish Pryor, Robin Shackleford and Ed DeLaney were the legislators in attendance.
