An essential part of any experience in Israel is to head to the “Shuk”, the vibrant outdoor marketplace typical of the Middle East. But if you can’t go to the Shuk, at last the Shuk can come to you! Friends of Israel, a CAMERA-supported organisation at Rockland County College held a Shuk Party at their campus, and it was a great success.

Tasting the Israeli food

The Shuk Party featured Israeli food, such as humus and falafel, along with Israeli music. They also had a Sodastream there, which provided an opportunity to describe how Israelis and Palestinians can and do work together, and how BDS is harmful to both Israelis and Palestinians, rather than help bring peace. The event created a great vibe for the Friends of Israel group, and it was attended by around one hundred students.

The first Friends of Israel event of the year was well attended.
