The Jewish Week: Widen the Israel Discussion on Campus

The Jewish Week: Widen the Israel Discussion on Campus

February 17, 2015

Consul General of Israel in New York, Ido Aharoni, writes about the need to broaden conversations about Israel on American university campuses. 

He argues that, in addition to the 'Israeli-Palestinian/Arab conflict', conversations about Israel need to cover topics that resonate with college students, like sustainability, business health, and other issues that concern them. He goes on to commend those organizations, including Masa Israel Journey, that have set an example for the rest of the community:

 

"We should empower the organizations that have adopted this approach, when it comes to Israel. The efforts of organizations like Masa [Israel], Birthright, JNF, Lapid, AIPAC, JFNA, Hillel and others have resulted in a new phenomenon in which this generation is looking to Israel as a place of opportunity."

Arutz Sheva: Jewish Agency Delegation Visits Paris Jewish Community

Arutz Sheva: Jewish Agency Delegation Visits Paris Jewish Community

February 9, 2015

Last week, members of Jewish Agency For Israel Board of Governors travelled to Paris to show their solidarity with the local Jewish community and to assess the community's needs in the wake of last month's terror attacks. While in Paris, the group met with numerous French Jewish community leaders.

"Speaking to the group, community leaders praised The Jewish Agency's work in France and asked that it be expanded even further. 'Masa is the strongest way to keep our young people connected to Israel and being Jewish,' said Keren Hayesod France President Richard Prasquier, referring to Masa Israel Journey, a partnership between The Jewish Agency and the Government of Israel that brings thousands of Jewish young people from around the world to experience life in Israel each year."
