Congregation Beth Torah: KS 3rd Congressional District Candidate Forum

Congregation Beth Torah will host a Candidate Forum for all declared candidates for the KS 3rd Congressional District. Co-sponsors include The Temple, Congregation B’nai Jehudah; The New Reform Temple; and Jewish Vocational Services (JVS).

Sunday, February 11, 2018 from 2-3:30pm at Congregation Beth Torah, 6100 127th, Overland Park, KS 66209. 

Nick Haines, Executive Producer/Public Affairs for KCPT Public Television, will moderate the event. Our goal is to have a civil discussion of key issues that Congress will face in the next two years.

To insure civility, we will use rules devised by American Public Square (APS). Specifically:

- There will be no applause during the Forum.

- Members of the audience will be given "incivility bells" to ring if the conversation is getting uncivil.

- We will have librarians as fact checkers. Audience members may request a fact check on any claim made by candidates.

- We will take questions from the audience, but they will be written down read by the moderator.

Using these rules, we will allow the candidates to clearly state their positions and views.

We would like to thank our co sponsors:

Jewish Vocational Services (JVS)
The New Reform Temple
The Temple, Congregation B'nai Jehudah
For their support for this important event.
