More than 30 prominent US Jewish leaders held two days of extensive meetings with US officials responsible for US foreign policy in the Middle East ending on Thursday.

The delegation included representatives from Jewish Federations in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, South Florida and Washington DC. The Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) also participated.

In a series of closed-door, off-the-record meetings, the Jewish leaders learned details about the steps taken by the Obama Administration over the last year and a half to enhance Israel’s security, stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program and combat the deligitimization campaign against Israel.

The delegation met George Mitchell, Dennis Ross and others;they also held discussions with key senators and congressmen.

The meetings were arranged before Obama's invitation to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is due to visit Washington in the next few days.
