#ILEAD

Date: Sunday, May 15
Time: 11:00 am - 2:30 pm (EDT)
Aidekman Jewish Community Campus

Israel Leadership, Education, and Advocacy Day

 

  • Are you confused by the portrayal of Israel on your social media feed?
  • Do you want to know when and how to respond to anti-Israel comments?
  • Are you concerned by rising antisemitism on college campus (and beyond)? 

If so, join us at this Israel engagement and leadership training retreat for teens and their parents* to learn how to respond to anti-Israel sentiment and empower yourself to become a pro-Israel advocate on social media and on college campuses. Plus, kosher lunch is included, every attendee will take home a copy of Yossi Klein Halevi’s Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor, and we’ll create a special banner for Celebrate Israel Parade on May 22 in NYC!

*Parents are invited for a special breakout session to address the tensions and dynamics on campus and help them talk to their children about these and other issues.

 

Keynote speaker Rachel Fish is an internationally acclaimed expert in the fields of rising antisemitism, social media, and Middle East politics who has helped train thousands of students and adults to combat anti-Israel activity and antisemitism.

This program is co-sponsored by:
Congregation Agudath Israel, Caldwell
Temple B’nai Abraham, Livingston
Temple B’nai Jeshurun, Short Hills
