Did you know? The Midwest has seen a 27% increase in BDS and anti-Israel activity on college campuses, according to Israel on Campus Coalition, a pro-Israel non-profit. The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement (BDS) continues to delegitimize the State of Israel, with growing support on our college campuses. We are helping young adults build strong Jewish identities by deepening their connection to Israel through personal experiences and providing the tools needed to stand up and speak out for what they believe in. We are proud to be Jewish Cleveland and support Israel. Together, we stand united.
With your support, Federation launched an Israel Advocacy Fellows Program to train a cohort of Jewish young professionals to work with students and the community to fight BDS. The fellows receive in-depth training with leading subject matter experts to deepen their own nuanced understanding of advocacy while developing the skills needed to train and support others.
