This summer, students from all over the world convened in Boston for CAMERA’s Sixth Annual Leadership and Advocacy Training Conference. They came from all over – from New York, Toronto, and California, to the United Kingdom, and Israel.  They came to learn how to defend Israel on campus and how to correct bias in the media, and to meet other CAMERA  Fellows and members of CAMERA-supported Israel groups.

I expected to leave with an understanding of the situation on campus and how students are fighting bias and lies about Israel. I got all of this and more: I left with the power of a network committed to truth and to  defending Israel.  Yes, the information was valuable, but more valuable still were the new connections I made with other students, all with their own perspectives and stories on Israel.
