Strength in numbers: Jewish caucus a powerful advocate in Sacramento

Assemblymember Jose Medina, who represents parts of Riverside County, is one of the caucus’ three associate members. He said he worked with Rabbi Suzanne Singer of Temple Beth El in Riverside to put together a meeting with UC Riverside officials over concerns about a class with an anti-Israel slant being taught there.

“I think the caucus does make a difference,” Medina said. “No matter what issues we’ve taken on — whether it be anti-boycott of Israel or meeting with the prime minister of Israel or talking about campus climate — I think all of us are stronger when we speak as a caucus.”
