The David Project has just released a new film about Israel on campus, entitled: “Finding Our Voices.” This documentary explores the story of students at Smith College and Hampshire College, and how they stood up to hostile anti-Israel sentiment on their campuses and seized the opportunity to educate their peers about the real facts relating to Israel and Israeli society. Instead of shouting slogans and rhetoric, these students created a space for dialogue and discussion, helping others gain a better understanding of the complexities of the Arab-Israeli conflict, and why Israel embodies the very values that those who attend liberal arts schools hold dear.
“Finding Our Voices” is the first in a series of short films about how pro-Israel students, with support from organizations such as The David Project, are transforming campuses across the country so that the next generation of leaders, both Jewish and non-Jewish, will be vocal and committed supporters of the State of Israel and a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our all of our generous donors for their continued support of our efforts to educate the next generation of pro-Israel leaders on campus.
