Third Annual Israel Activism Symposium

On November 29, 2012, the Yeshivah of Flatbush held its third annual Israel Activism symposium. Schools including Magen David, Hanc, North Shore, and Shulamith attended the symposium. The program's goal was to show students the importance of advocating for our homeland Israel. Students learned that in no way shape or form should the US-Israel relationship be taken for granted. Speakers from AIPAC, BBYO, and Stand With Us, informed and educated the students about the importance of Israel as a Jewish state, an American ally, and as our homeland. The sessions were interactive and interesting for the students. After the program the students were not only excited to go out and do their part in calling their representative or setting up a meeting with them, they were inspired to share their knowledge and convince their friends that going out to advocate for Israel is so easy yet so important. ~Asher Lifshutz, Sophomore.
