JPAC Capitol Summit 2023

As JPAC's premier annual event, Capitol Summit (formally known as Advocacy Day) provides an empowering opportunity for California's Jewish community members and allies to learn about the Jewish community's priorities and engage in the political process.

During this two-day gathering (Tuesday May 9 to Wednesday May 10), you will hear from some of the state's most powerful lawmakers and activists, practice and participate in direct lobbying, and have access to exclusive networking opportunities with elected officials, Jewish organizational leaders, and lay leaders from across the state.

At JPAC Capitol Summit, we amplify the voice of California's Jewish community at the State Capitol.
