The Hamilton Jewish community's champion in the arena of community relations and public affairs is its public affairs committee. The mandate of Federation's Public Affairs Committee (PAC) is to ensure that the interests of the Hamilton Jewish Community, especially as they relate to Israel, are fairly presented in the general community. In fulfilling this mandate, the PAC intends to recruit and train volunteers to take responsibility for media relations and media monitoring, to liase with all levels of government, and to build relationships with local opinion-makers. The PAC also recognizes the need ro provide the community with speakers and programs that inform and motivate, and promote ongoing involvement with issues that affect Jewish life, both locally and in Israel.
