Israel Activism Hasbara Symposium

An Israel Activism Hasbara Symposium was held at Yeshivah of Flatbush on on May 3, 2012. Speakers included Joey Cohen-Saban (HS '11), representing the campaign to elect Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries to Congress; Avi Posnick, the regional director of StandWithUs; Benjamin Ryberg, the director of research at the Lawfare Project; Ari Lieberman, an expert on racism and bias on the Internet and Wikipedia; and Michael Ross, a man who fell in love with Israel, converted to Judaism, joined the IDF, and was recruited into the Mossad for 13 years. It was a huge success. Thank you to the Israel Awareness Commission for putting this all together.
