CAMERA supported campuses have been busy for the first half of February! Each event was well attended and proved to be successful!
Aggies for Israel at UC Davis held a successful event at the end of January! During the event, they were able to discuss Tu B’Shvat, their organization, and the process of becoming a new member! It was a great way to jump back into the semester and meet with their new members!
At the beginning of February, Binghamton University Zionist Organization (BUZO) at Binghamton University held their event “Shuk Shack”. They were able to recreate their own form of the shuk in Israel on their own campus! Students were given facts about Israel (with a “shuk like theme”!), to use as their currency in the shuk. The event was attended by more than double the number of people that they were expecting, and had the feedback on the event was overwhelmingly positive!
At the end of Fall semester, Bobcats for Israel at Ohio University held “Israeli Shabbat”. Different groups of students were able to come together to talk about their past or upcoming Birthright trips, current events, and Israeli culture. It was a great way to bring different communities together!
