J Streeters hit Hill

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Hundreds of J Street activists lobbied Congress for deeper U.S. involvement in Israeli-Arab peace talks.

J Street, the dovish pro-Israel lobby, said that 700 of the 1,500 people who attended its first conference spent Wednesday on Capitol Hill lobbying "for clear and unequivocal Congressional support for a negotiated, two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict" and a "critical role" by the United States in those talks, a statement said.

The activists had meetings in 210 of the 535 lawmakers’ offices on the Hill, including about 100 meetings with the lawmakers themselves, the statement said.
