The RJC's 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates Forum was an outstanding success. Thirteen presidential candidates joined us in Washington, DC to address the issues most important to the Jewish community.
Each gave an impressive, thoughtful, and exciting speech and made time for your questions. If you were unable to join us in person, you can watch the program in its entirety here.
The amphitheater in the Ronald Reagan Building was packed for the entire day, with a standing-room-only crowd of attendees and representatives of over 150 different media outlets. The event dominated the news cycle and #RJCForum was the number one trending topic on Twitter. Below is a sampling of the media coverage from the event.
