The American Jewish Congress is excited to sponsor the Chabad Lubavitch of Iowa's “Caucus for Shabbat” in Des Moines, Iowa. The Shabbat dinner will be welcoming the staffers and volunteers currently working in the 2020 presidential campaigns in Iowa, as well as the journalists that are working tirelessly covering the first contest of the U.S. presidential primary season.
At a time of high political polarization, diverging views on some of the critical issues facing Americans today, and especially a hard-fought primary election, the “Caucus for Shabbat” will serve as a way to inclusively bring together the Jewish community. Journalists and political activists will gather this upcoming Friday in a celebration that aims to alleviate political differences and, most importantly, cherish the Jewish and American values that unite us all.
The Friday night Shabbat dinner will take place at the Judaic Resource Center in Des Moines, Iowa on January 31st and a reservation is required. Please call 515-277-1718 or RSVP at www.JewishIowa.com/
