CAMERA Fellow at Simmons College, Allison Moldoff, hosted Kay Wilson, a British-born Israeli tour guide, jazz musician and cartoonist, at Northeastern University. Wilson is the survivor of a brutal terror attack that occurred while she was guiding in December 2010. Since the attack, she has become an amazing motivational speaker. At the co-sponsored event with Stand With Us, Wilson spoke to over 25 students at Northeastern University about issues of human rights and justice for victims of terrorism as well as the importance of being advocates for the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
Moldoff stated that she wanted “students to feel empowered to stand up for Israel. Often times, due to a lot of anti-Semitism on campus, students are afraid to speak up. But, after hearing Kay’s story, I hoped students would realize how important it was to be advocates for themselves and for Israel.”
Kay’s presentation sparked an incredibly impactful and engaging discussion between her and the students. One student said that Kay’s story was so meaningful that she no longer wanted to be a bystander when it came to Israel and she now understood how important it is to stand of for Israel.
This event was a great kickoff event for Moldoff and we look forward to hearing about the next pro-Israel event she hosts on campus!
