Past AIPAC Real Estate Division Events

In 2008 AIPAC launched an effort to engage activists from New York’s real estate community in AIPAC’s critical work through the establishment of the AIPAC Real Estate Division. The primary purpose of this effort is to encourage participation in AIPAC, engagement in pro-Israel political efforts together with industry colleagues, and the building of relationships with members of Congress.
