The BBYO AIPAC delegation has made it to Washington D.C., and we are excited for the conference to start tomorrow. All we have done so far is register and pick up our materials, but even that has been eye-opening and, to be honest, a little awe-inspiring. This whole event is much bigger than we expected. There are secret service, police and AIPAC staff everywhere we look. We never expected to see to see so many pro-Israel people in one place, and we can only imagine the magnitude of the crowd when everyone shows up to the opening plenary tomorrow. We can't wait for the morning - so many powerful people all rallying around a cause we believe in. It's going to be great.
