Special BDS Presentation for High School Students, made by StandWithUs

StandWithUs is an organization dedicated to educating people about Israel and how to combat the anti-Semitism and extremism that often distorts the issues. Knowledge of the facts will correct common prejudices about the Arab-Israeli conflict, and will promote discussions and policies that can help promote peace in the region. This topic is hotly debated in our college campuses, and our students must be prepared to respond to the critics against Israel. On Monday Feburary 18th at 7:00 pm, Stand With Us will be giving a presentation about the current affairs of BDS. The event will be held at 54 Steamboat Road, open to all High School Students. It is imperative that our community be educated about Israel Advocacy, and this can be a great start to a more structured and ongoing collaboration with StandWithUs. Dinner Will Be Served! Please contact Brandon Benilevi for more information at b.benilevi@gmail.com.
