The CAMERA Fellowship supports student leaders in developing and strengthening their pro-Israel activism on campus. With the school year underway, InFocus is giving you an inside look into the lives of the 2016-17 CAMERA Fellows who are working hard to promote the facts about Israel on campus.
Meet Micah Rosen.
A sophomore at Brown University, Micah is studying History and Philosophy. He was raised in a household with a strong connection to Judaism. His Jewish identity developed while attending Jewish sleep-away camp, Camp Ramah in California, for many summers. Beginning as a camper at Camp Ramah, Micah soon became an active member of the greater Camp Ramah community.
Each summer, he met and bonded with Israel staff members who inspired him to develop a deep connection with Israel. After a number of years as a camper, Micah planned Israel education programs at the camp and organized panels for high school participants. Taking on a leadership role at the summer camp, Micah continued to learn from staff members and educators in the Ramah community, who oftentimes are heavily involved in Israel advocacy.
Inspired by a deep interest in and love for Israel, Micah is now an active board member of Brown Students for Israel. As part of the board, he plans Israel-related events and works with student leaders to promote a positive, truthful understanding of Israel on campus. Aside from his involvement in Israel advocacy, Micah sheds light on various social issues in America as a staff writer for the Brown Political Review. In addition, Micah is active in Brown’s Student Government. On and off of campus, Micah constantly thinks about how to best support Israel. In addition to all his campus work, he also helps to run several pro-Israel campaigns in the greater Providence, RI community.
Micah is very excited to be a CAMERA Fellow this school year. He knows that the CAMERA community will support him in his efforts to defend Israel on campus. With help of the CAMERA Fellowship, Micah aims to inspire productive, genuine dialogue concerning Israel within his own community at Brown and in Providence. CAMERA on Campus is looking forward to seeing the results of Micah’s passion and hard work for Israel this school year!
