Sunday, September 15 at 11 am

The event will be held at the Pipeline Philly 30 South 15th street 15th floor.

Join us as we hear from Halie Soifer, Executive Director of Jewish Democratic Council of America

(JDCA), on the importance of the Jewish vote in 202O. She will discuss the most recent poll data on the Jewish vote and why we as PA Jews are the “Keystone “ to a Democratic win. You will be quite surprised by the data! Special guest, US Rep. Susan Wild (PA 7), will speak about her experience as the only Jewish Congresswoman from the State of PA and more generally about her experience as a Freshman Congresswoman.

Halie Soifer is the Executive Director of JDCA. You might recognize her from her multiple television appearances on behalf of JDCA. She served from

2017-2018 as National Security Advisor to Senator Kamala Harris (CA), advising on matters pertaining to foreign policy, defense, veterans, and cybersecurity. Previously she served as foreign policy advisor and committee staff for three

Members of Congress – Rep. Robert Wexler (FL), Sen. Ted Kaufman (DE), and Sen. Chris Coons (DE).
