On August 6, 2013 students from various Greek organizations will come together to discuss the importance of Israel activism on their respective campuses. They will meet at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City for Alpha Epsilon Pi’s annual Israel Amplified conference (co-sponsored by CAMERA). These students are looking to create change on their college campuses, many of which are plagued with an anti-Israel climate.
The three day one-of-a-kind highly subsidized event will include networking with peers, touring New York City and plenty of discussion about Israel. Additionally, the event will have guest speakers from CAMERA and various other organizations, and over 125 Jewish and non-Jewish Greek leaders from all over the nation.
This display of passion for Israel is a monumental step forward for a age demographic that is often seen as being unfriendly towards Israel. Even more exciting is that these students are in many different fraternities and sororities, giving this event a greater feeling of unity.
