Greenville Jewish Federation participates in Advocacy Day

Leadership of the Greenville Jewish Federation took part in a day of advocacy in Columbia at the State House on March 6th.

Rep.  Beth Bernstein read a pro-Israel resolution, condemning Hamas, followed by the House and gallery standing in a show of support for Israel. Representatives from Secure Communities Network (SCN), ACLU and the ADL participated. Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette, State Rep. Wendell Gilliard and Sen. Larry Grooms each gave time to the group as part of the SC Jewish Advocacy Day at the State House.

“The goal of Jewish Advocacy Day is to help our lawmakers understand the threats the Jewish community in South Carolina faces and the importance of legislative action to recognize antisemitism and hate crimes,” Tessler said. “Our work isn’t over after Advocacy Day, as we will continue to encourage the Jewish community to engage with their elected officials and be heard.”
