DC Jewish Voter's Guide
Federation partner, the Jewish Community Relations Council, has teamed up with our friends at the Washington Jewish Week to create the 2022 DC Jewish Primary Voter’s Guide. This Voter’s Guide was compiled by sending survey questions on important topics to each candidate in a contested race for their party’s nomination.
