Jewish community and organizational leaders gathered at the home of Sarita Spiwak in Century City, California to meet and hear from the chairwoman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, South Florida’s Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
As chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, a key committee in shaping American foreign policy, she has written and ushered through Congress innumerable pieces of pro-Israel legislation, including bills strengthening the U.S.-Israel alliance, addressing radical Islam, preventing U.S. tax dollars from supporting Hamas and Hizbullah, and most recently, legislation that increases sanctions against Iran.
