Past speakers have included Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen, Special Envoy for Middle East Peace George Mitchell, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Elie Wiesel.

JPDS-NC is an independent community day school, and the only Jewish day school in Washington, DC.
