Wednesday – Advocate for Israel - הגנת ישראל - (Haganat Yisrael):

Although Israel is no longer a politically small nation, advocating for Israel is important because the future of the country is dependent on effective advocates and allies from around the world. Good advocates are educated about the issues facing Israel from all sides and know how to discuss these issues with others. In addition, they are able to take action: plan a rally, make a learning group, or speak to elected officials. It is imperative to involve more pro-Israel advocates in the American political process by broadening pro-Israel political participation.


Social Media: Tell us how and why you plan to advocate for Israel. "I will advocate for Israel because . I will advocate for Israel by . #SpeakUPWeek #BBYO4Israel"


NRE Twist: There are two men (one Israeli, one Palestinian) who want to show the world that the fighting between the two sides is ridiculous. They decided to "Give peace a dance." Check out this video: http://givepeaceadance.org/ Create your own chapter video! Start by saying why you believe peace needs to be achieved, and then dance it out!!
