On Tuesday, May 6th, the CCAP group at Chico State University, Emet, held an event with professor Michael Leitner. It boasted 150 students and the University president, and was dedicated to a Yom Ha’Atzmaut celebration.
Through a brief discussion on Israeli Life and Leisure in the 21st Century, followed by Israeli music, dancing, and food, Chico University’s Hillel was incredibly successful in bringing in a huge portion of the community together! The entire presentation can be watched here.
By focusing on the cultural and fun aspects, Chico University’s Hillel, in conjunction with CAMERA, was able to develop a positive view of Israel that is a rarity among many college students!
