The CIJA Team

The CIJA team is a dedicated group of professionals comprised of analysts, public affairs specialists, researchers, historians, pollsters, writers, editors, web and social-media practitioners, relationship-builders, and media-relation experts with decades of experience. Though different in many ways, they have this in common: they care deeply about the issues and they work had to advance them on behalf of the organized Jewish community.
