Israel Awareness Meeting

On Friday, February 1, 2013, the Israel Awareness Commission held a meeting discussing Israel's election. Mr. Rothbort explained to the students the complexity of Israel's elections. He explained that the only democracy in the Middle East does not have a simple process of electing a new Prime Minister. Beyond the election various political parties will need to work together to form an effective government.

Alumnus Joey Cohen-Saban also came to speak off the record about the event to be held next week at Brooklyn College. Mr. Rothbort together with Mr. Saban put out an important message which was: If you see something that you do not like, you must speak out about it and make your voice heard.
