Students for Accuracy about Israeli and Palestinian Affairs (SAIPA), the Brandeis University Emet for Israel group hosted, Wheel of Misconceptions: A Game Show Style Discussion about Israeli and Palestinian Affairs. The event was very successful and was attended by nearly 50 students! The idea of the game was to bring together people who are already interested in the topic and new students who wanted to learn more.


During the game the students split off into teams to play the game. CAMERA student, Misha Vilenchuk, said, “By chance, the wheel was spun on topics such as ‘The United Nations‘ and ‘History of Israel.’” Challenging questions were asked, such as “do you believe the UN treats Israel fairly…” After the questions were finished the students had a discussion in their small groups in which they reflected on the questions from the game and began asking each other more questions.

SAIPA’s event was successful because it was widely attended, made the attendees excited about SAIPA’s future events and ensured that the attendees learned something about the conflict.
