Students are always coming up with creative ways to run pro-Israel events, and for the second year running, Owls for Israel, CAMERA-supported group at Florida Atlantic University, held an Artists 4 Israel event on campus.
Artists 4 Israel describe their mission as using art to bring social change, and use their events to tell Israel’s story. At the FAU event, the artists made customized T-shirts for the students, as Owls for Israel members engaged students in discussion about Israel, telling students more about the country. They handed out materials containing facts about Israel, as well as flyers containing information about Owls for Israel. In particular, Owls for Israel students focused on telling the story of Israeli innovation.
This is not the first time that CAMERA-supported groups have held events with Artists 4 Israel. In the past, CAMERA-supported group 49ers for Israel brought Artists 4 Israel’s Peace Wall to California State University Long Beach (CSULB), and CAMERA-supported group Great Danes for Israel ran an event at SUNY Albany, where the artists set up a giant Israel-themed graffiti mural.
The Artists 4 Israel event was the opening event in an exciting series at FAU – February at FAU is Israel Awareness Month! Events this month include an Israeli style Shabbat dinner, a lunch and learn with Israeli medical students, and a karaoke evening to raise money for the incredible Israeli humanitarian group, Save a Child’s Heart. Through all these events, students at FAU can continue to educate more people about Israel’s story, and show their support for the amazing projects going on within the country.
