This past semester, Madison Israel Club (MIC), the pro-Israel Emet for Israel student group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, orchestrated an event titled Less Hamas, More Hummus in an effort to educate students about Operation Protective Edge and provide a more comprehensive understanding of the challenges that Israel faces. The discussion-based event helped students to feel become engaged in the pro-Israel conversation.
Later in the semester, MIC hosted an event titled Terrorism Financing and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict which was cosponsored by Jewish and Political Science organizations. The event, featuring Avi Jorisch, was intended to complicate students’ current understanding of the Middle East by providing a new perspective. Emet for Israel representative, Alexandra Zimmern, stated that “students were extremely interested in Jorisch’s talk on terrorism finance, as the event engaged dozens of students who are now joining the fight against Israel bias in Madison.”
MIC’s successful events generated awareness and attracted new members to the student group! Nicely done, MIC! We are proud of you!
