Jewish Student Services co-ordinated lectures by renown Israel speaker Neil Lazarus at three locations November 7th. On tour courtesy of Stand With Us, the LA-based international Israel advocacy group, Neil spoke three times to packed audiences.
At Tarbut v Torah, the students of the 11th and 12th grade gave Neil a standing ovation. At UCI, the Anteaters For Israel student club ran out of seats for the 40+ students on hand to learn about advocacy and the media. At the Alpert JCC, 50 people from all segments of the community, plus students from CSU Long Beach and CSU Fullerton, engaged in a powerful training and advocacy program.
Learning how to answer tough questions about Israel and how to effectively communicate about Israel are skills that students and community members need.
