First Matisyahu then our Students, Anti-BDS Israel Advocacy

Matisyahu gets flack for being a Jew. Imagine the pressures felt by University students. From the University to corporate campuses propaganda fans hatred and de-legimizes the State of Israel. 

New Speaker:

Robert Walker from Hasbara Fellowships will be bringing his engaging presentation which has taken him to many campuses and Synagogues. More details to follow. 

Hasbara Fellowships is a leading pro-Israel campus activism organization working with over 80 Universities across North America. Hasbara Fellowships, a program spearheaded by Aish International since 2001, brings hundreds of students to Israel every summer and winter, giving them the information and tools to return to their campuses as educators about Israel. So far, Hasbara Fellowships has educated over 3,000 students on over 250 campuses. Upon returning from the program, the Hasbara Fellows receive support from our staff, as well as access to various campaigns, programs, speakers and other materials and tools. Hasbara Fellowships focuses on college campuses, but the information and tools offered are applicable for other forums as well. Hasbara Fellowships is an independent, private non-profit organization that receives its funding from private donors and foundations. Hasbara Fellowships does not receive any funding from any US government or foreign government sources.


Vera N. Held, President, and Lisa Cohen, Executive Director, co-founded The Centre for Jewish Culture and Education (CJCE) in January 2015. With their ever-growing
volunteer team, they educate and train Jewish youth to successfully navigate university campuses in Ontario.
With the overt resurgence of worldwide anti-Semitism, helping Jewish youth in Ontario to become more confident emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and physically is a must now more than ever.

In this interactive workshop presentation you will become more familiar with some of the challenges facing Jewish students today---as early as those in grade 9.

Kindly review the student testimonials and blog comments at the CJCE and come prepared to ask questions, share ideas and information and discuss your concerns. This important conversation pertains to the whole family---all generations and all future generations.
