Yoseph Haddad Tours Israel With CAMERA on Campus!
Throughout May and June, CAMERA on Campus in Israel hosted four separate student-led events featuring renowned Arab-Israeli peace activist Yoseph Haddad. Campuses included the IDC Herzliya, Hebrew University, Ben-Gurion University, and Bar-Ilan University. Although the IDC event was held via zoom due to rocket fire from Gaza, every other event took place in person – for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began! Needless to say, students were excited to put down their computers. During his lectures, Yoseph discussed his experience as a commander in the IDF during the Second Lebanon War, the importance of coexistence, and, of course, he debunked the vicious “Israeli apartheid” lie.
Yoseph’s message was especially meaningful and inspiring, as always. Thank you, Yoseph!

CAMERA’s premier CAMERA Fellowship program is now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 academic year. The fellowship is a prestigious program geared towards students who are activists, have an in-depth knowledge of the history of Israel, current issues, and the Arab-Israeli conflict, and are excited to correct misinformation while educating their peers in a public format. This may include publishing articles in the campus paper, holding open educational events (online or in-person), creating and sharing material on social media platforms, and/or all the above.
Fellows receive a stipend and attend our annual student leadership training conference, where they meet with more than 100 student activists from across the US, Canada, the UK, and Israel.
On June 5th, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs CAMERA Fellow Seth Mendel’s article unpacking the hatred fueling the “apartheid” lie commonly directed at Israel was published in the Jerusalem Post, garnering quite a bit of positive feedback! Click here to read the article.
“My relationship with Zionism is one of love. I am empowered to be a Zionist because of my passion for Israel and educating others. I fell in love with Israel after living there over the summer of 2019 and learned so much about the history and wish to keep sharing that with other Jews and Zionists alike.”
“This Is What A Zionist Looks Like” is a CAMERA on Campus Instagram project that aims to show the world that Zionists come from diverse backgrounds and have diverse interests. We showcase different Zionists, their stories, their interests, and their beliefs.
