IsrOn April 23rd, the EMET for Israel group at CUNY Baruch CollegeYouth Organization for Israel (YOFI), in New York City hosted a celebration for Israel’s 67th birthday. The event, which drew well over 1000 students, was intended to show students the beauty and importance of the state of Israel .

One of the most notable aspects of the celebration was the large-scale Declaration of Independence that the group had printed up. Passersby were able to read and sign it, and many did. In addition, many of the students who stopped by signed up for future events. The celebration, as CAMERA liaison Sivanna Shusterman put it, “engaged students in celebration and learning.”
