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!
