Rudy Rochman Speaks With Students About Israel Advocacy

Yesterday, Rudy Rochman, a former IDF soldier and Israel advocate at Columbia University, came to Yeshivah of Flatbush to discuss the challenges that students face on college campuses with our seniors. Mr. Rochman started off by showing us a personal side of the Israeli army that some of us were unaware of. Then later on in the presentation Mr. Rochman shared his experience at UCLA and elaborated on how we could all fight for Israel on campus. By being vocal and presenting the public with the facts we can help sway public opinion in Israel's favor. Ultimately, students gained insight into some of the narratives that they previously learned about in Israel in World Relations class. ~Avraham Tessone, Class of 2017
