“I cannot thank CAMERA enough for guiding me and helping me focus my energy and passion for Israel in an efficient way. I have grown as an individual and as a learner. I am better equipped with information from the CAMERA alerts and the fantastic speakers. Without CAMERA I would not have had the resources or the knowledge to start a pro-Israel movement on campus. Before I became involved in CAMERA I did not know where to start. However, with CAMERA's help I was able to slowly begin to bring events on campus and eventually bring in speakers like Bret Stephens. I truly thank CAMERA. I do not know where the pro-Israel movement on Drexel's campus would be if CAMERA has not graciously helped with their time and resources.I can honestly say that if it were not for CAMERA, Drexel students would not be introduced to a pro-Israel environment on campus. Students would not be as lucky as to hear from honorable speakers. I enjoyed and benefited in the sense that I now know how to better approach news sources in respect to Israel. I can counteract many more issues and myths than I did coming into CAMERA. I cannot thank CAMERA enough for the amazing year that has enriched me in every facet of my life! Thank you CAMERA!”-Shoshana Weiss, CAMERA Fellow 2010-2011, CCAP Liaison 2011-2013
"I have been serving on the Dragons For Israel's board for 2 years and the impact of CAMERA's grant is made clear at every board meeting we have.This year, our organization made use of supporting CAMERA resources by holding successful events that impacted students more than ever before which caused a rise in commitment among new members to the DFI. As the incoming President of DFI, I am ecstatic about the potential that we can achieve next year with CAMERA's support."-Asher Braverman, CCAP Liaison 2013
"The CAMERA Fellowship inspired me to actively stay informed of both Israel-related events and international news. I learned analytic skills which I will continue to use as a lifelong pro-Israel advocate."-Josh Dienstman, CAMERA Fellow 2013-2014
