"Finally, there is a major player organization that supports Israel, the US, and global stability by working actively for peace. I believe that J Street understands Israel can only be secure if peace is achieved with its internal population of Palestinians and with its neighbors."

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

start to more accurately reflect Jewish sentiment and views towards Israeli policy and bring us closer to peace in the Middle East.

I'm contacting you to you today to see if you'd be willing to use your comment to help us win the Jewish Choice Awards on GreatNonProfits.org. We really loved it. You said: "I stand with J Street because I am inspired by your pro-peace, pro-Israel message and at the same time your willingness to shake things up.... Our country is in such trouble and I believe you really want to roll up your sleeves and make it a better world! Thanks for all you do."

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

giving me insight to the conflicts in the USA and Palestine and Israel

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

too new to say what I would change

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They are refreshing and have a voice and message to our country. The best comment I read about them is by someone in Israel: this is the group I have been waiting 45 years for.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Impressive, respectful, progressive

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help to change our world for the better

Ways to make it better...

More people would recognize them as a legitimate Jewish group

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the criticism and competitiveness in other pro-Israel groups

One thing I'd also say is that...

They are a huge asset to peace. I am not Jewish but this group makes me wish I was, or at least makes me feel VERY proud of them. I LOVE them and look forward to their emails and activities and organization.

I support J Street since they are one of the few who think rationally when thinking about Israel. There are emotions behind the rationality but they are positive and serve to benefit Israel rather than send it down a devastating path.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading about the success of the 1st Conference.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not do it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the feeling of doing something to bring the message to Washington.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated to delivering the truth.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

possibly sway the House & Senate away from the counter organizations.

Ways to make it better...

I could have attended.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the counter organizations with more money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

thank God there are American Jews who know what is right for Israel. I hope they can positively effect Israeli Jews.
