RJC Arizona Chapter Announces Orit and Adam Kwasman as New Chapter Leaders

Scottsdale, AZ – The Republican Jewish Coalition announced that Orit and Adam Kwasman have been named Leaders of the Arizona Chapter to spearhead the organization’s efforts in this critical battleground state. The Kwasmans have spent a combined 30 years involved in politics, campaigns, and the legislature and are an ideal fit to lead the organization’s grassroots efforts in Arizona.

The RJC has maintained an active presence in Arizona since the early 2000s. Given the rapidly growing Jewish community there and the fact that the state is one of the last true remaining “purple” battleground states, the RJC is expanding its role in Arizona, increasing community outreach and fundraising, and executing targeted get-out-the-vote efforts and advocacy initiatives.

“Not only have we been members of the RJC for almost 20 years, but it’s where we first met and began our lives together,” said Orit Kwasman, a fundraising and public relations consultant.

“The RJC has a proven track record of impacting politics and policy, elections and legislation, and we are thrilled to lead the RJC Arizona Chapter in such a critical time for our state and country,” said Adam Kwasman, who is a former Arizona state Representative and owner and partner at Wagner & Kwasman, PLLC, a leading civil law firm.

RJC CEO Matt Brooks said, “We are very excited that Orit and Adam have agreed to take on this new leadership role in Arizona. The RJC’s successful outreach and advocacy efforts in Florida, Georgia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania in recent years demonstrate the impact and reach of our organization. Arizona is a key state for Republicans and for the Jewish community today and we look forward to chalking up successes there in the years ahead as well.”




Orit (Sklar) Kwasman is a public relations and fundraising consultant. She is the former Development Director at the Faith & Freedom Coalition, America’s largest and most influential organization dedicated to educating and mobilizing people of faith for effective civic action.

A political writer and commentator, Orit has contributed to leading publications and provided election and political analysis for CNN's Newsroom, a wide range of radio programs, and The Georgia Gang, Fox 5 Atlanta's weekly political television show.

She is known nationwide for her advancement of First Amendment rights and academic freedom on American university campuses and is the co-recipient of the 2009 Ronald Reagan Award from the American Conservative Union. As a college student, Orit successfully challenged Georgia Tech's unconstitutional policies restricting free speech and infringing on religious liberty, filing suit in federal court, and enduring an unprecedented level of media malpractice and malicious threats.

A native of Mount Vernon, New York, she graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2007, receiving a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering. She, and her husband, Adam Kwasman, and three children reside in Scottsdale, Arizona where they are members and volunteers of Congregation Beth Tefillah and the Chabad of Phoenix.
