The Charlotte Jewish News - December 2001 - Page 6 United Jewish Communities Washington 13 Conference, February 10-12, 2002 3,000 Young Jewish Leaders Expected Abracadabra - an ancient Hebrew word meaning “with these words I shall create it” - will be the theme of the J3th biennial United Jewish Communities National Young Leadership Conference, expected to attract 3,000 young Jewish leaders to the nation’s capital February 10 to 12. The conference, known as Washington 13, is the single largest gathering of its kind in North America, and the young Jews in attendance will hear from top American, Israeli and Jewish political, media and community figures; meet other actively involved Jews from across the continent; discuss critical issues with their representatives on Capitol Hill; and learn about the Jewish world and their place in it. “Washington 13, as its prede cessors were, is a call to social and political action for an engaged generation of Jews,” said William Kreisberg, co-chair of the event, a member of the UJC National Young Leadership Cabinet, and president of the Jewish Community Center in Washington, DC. “By attending, young people are fulfilling their obligation to come together and create change with their words and actions - an objective that our Your Connection To The Jewish Community...

Abracadabra, so wonder fully reflects and is now more important than ever.” Three days of plenary sessions, 100-plus workshops on topical and critical issues facing the nation and the Jewish community, and visits with Congressional leaders will give Washington 13 participants the opportunity to exercise and expand their social, political and community involve ment, organizers said. “There is a magic to being with 3,000 young people who want to express their Jewish values by making a positive difference,” said Monique Gibbons, Washington 13 co-chair, UJC National Young Leadership Cabinet member and a board member of The Women’s Campaign of the Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles. For example, as part of Washington 12, in 2000, thou sands of participants fanned out across Capitol Hill to meet with their representatives and senators and speak out on such issues as military and economic aid to Israel and passage of federal hate crimes legislation. After meeting with Washington 12 delegations, ten members of Congress agreed to co-sponsor legislation guaran teeing certain rights to elderly managed care enrollees. “At the end of the three days, participants realize that we have a voice, and they walk away with the energy that comes from accomplishment and the mandate to go home and effect change either personally, politically or communally,” Gibbons added. Kreisberg said the theme of Washington 13 and the involve ment that it fosters and advances is even more important in light of the tragic events of September 11 and their aftermath. “We will mobilize collectively to express our support for the United States and Israel in their joint efforts to end terrorism and ensure that our shared democratic values and freedoms prevail,” he said. Among the political figures, social commentators, journalists, business leaders, entertainers and religious scholars who have appeared at past National Young Leadership Conferences were President Bill Clinton, Vice President A1 Gore and Israeli Prime Ministers Rabin, Shamir arid Netanyahu. The National Young Leadership Division of UJC and the 189 Jewish federations that it repre sents is directed at young Jews, aged 25 to 45, who express the Jewish value of tikkun olam, repair of the world, in communi ties across the continent.
