Jewish clergy and educators lobbied Congress to maintain food aid to foreign countries.

The American Jewish World Service brought about 20 clergy, rabbinical students and educators to Congress on Monday to lobby against proposed budget cuts to the emergency food aid.

Participants in the delegation had joined AJWS Rabbinical Student Delegations to developing world nations.

The AJWS release did not say which Congress members had been lobbied. Congress is seeking to cut programs as a means of trimming the deficit.
