New Jewish 1.jpgSherman Oaks, CA – On Wednesday, November 9th, Congressman Brad Sherman spoke at the New Community Jewish High School in West Hills.  Sherman has routinely hosted town hall meetings for students during his time in Congress including multiple events at nearly every public and private high school in the San Fernando Valley.

On Wednesday, Sherman spoke about many federal issues including education, the national debt, and military service academies and internship opportunities in his Sherman Oaks and Washington, DC offices. Sherman also responded to questions on a wide range of issues including economic policy, health care and college loans.

“It’s an honor to speak before a group of such promising young scholars,” said Congressman Sherman.  “After just 10 short years, New Community Jewish High School has become one of the most prominent Jewish high schools in the country.  Meetings like this are critical to the public policy process. They provide an opportunity for me to hear about the most pressing concerns of young Californians, and to elaborate on the work for students that my colleagues and I are tackling in Congress.  These students contributed to substantive conversations on a variety of issues that are important to the community.  I thank all the New Community Jewish students and faculty for their participation in the meeting, and I look forward to visiting again at their new campus.”

After speaking with the students, Congressman Sherman presented the Head of the School, Dr. Bruce Powell, with a flag flown over the United States Capitol.

Congressman Sherman directed the students to contact his Sherman Oaks office at (818) 501-9200 for further assistance with federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Education.  He encouraged students and their families to visit his website (www.BradSherman.house.gov) for more helpful information.
