University of Windsor’s Emet for Israel group, Jewish Students Association (JSA) organized Paint4Peace, a highly successful event involving a number of campus groups. All proceeds went to Save a Child’s Heart (SACH). Over thirty law students from varying affiliations, including the Muslim Students Association, the LGBTQ club, the South Asian Law Society, and the Catholic Students Association came together to paint a beautiful themed picture.


In order for the event to be a success, each participant donated $10 for Save a Child’s Heart, a charity based in Israel that specializes in providing urgently needed pediatric heart surgery for underprivileged children, usually from third world countries.

In the middle of the evening, Zina, who works at StandWithUs Canada, gave a speech about Israel’s deep commitment to humanitarian aid. This was new information to some students in attendance, but they were intrigued by what they learned.


The students were taught about foundations such as IsraAid, and the abundance of non-profit organizations that make up the Israeli job market; living proof of the country’s impressive humanitarian efforts.

The event aimed to bring a diverse student body together for a common cause, and to promote a positive perspective of Israel. This message was received well by all who attended, and each student learned something new about how Israel is making the world a better place.12472764_774408589327717_3923901551353165995_nThis event was co-sponsored by StandWithUs.
