On CAMERA- supported campuses, August and September have been months to “jump back in”. Different events across different campuses have allowed many students, faculty, and staff to connect and reconnect with other students within their community. Events such as tabling, general body meetings, and speaker held events allowed the different campus communities continue to set agendas for the semester and learn about different aspects of Israeli and Middle Eastern history.
Kolienu-Columbia Law Israel Organization held the event “Palestinian Politics & Israeli-Palestinian Peace After Abbas”. The event was well attended and was beneficial to those involved!
The Israel Student Association at Queens College CUNY held an event entitled, “Virtual Israel-ity”. This allowed for students to use Virtual Reality (VR) goggles to explore Israel from their own campus. The students of the Israel Student Association were able to attract students, both new and returning, to begin thinking about Israel.
ORU United for Israel at Oral Roberts University was able to table during the Club Rush event on campus. They were able to deliver the organizational message and speak with new students to campus!
Great Danes for Israel at the University at Albany, SUNY held an event about the Six Day War. Different speakers (some who served in the war, and one who was able to speak from a different perspective) gave an educational discussion about the war, and was able to answer questions that the group had about the event.
Tulane University For Israel had a general body meeting to discuss an overview of the organization, the agenda for the year, and discussed the different questions from the attendees. The meeting had a positive turnout and excitement for future events!
