Israeli Soldiers Set to Visit CU

StandbyUs Israeli Soldiers Stories

Two Israeli soldiers will recount their personal experiences and share insights of serving in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), on February 28, 2013 in Humanities 150 at 6:00 pm.  Kinneret and Adam will share their backgrounds, life in Israel and answer questions. The tour is sponsored by StandWithUs, the international Israel education organization and co-sponsored by Buffed Up on Israel. Admission is free.  Click here for the Facebook event page.

Kinneret and Adam are part of StandWithUs “Israeli Soldiers Stories” (ISS), an innovative program featuring a diverse group of reserve duty Israeli college students whose mission is to educate, inform, and delve into conversation about the Israeli-Arab conflict. Each soldier has a personal story that exposes the dilemmas of the conflict, including facing an enemy that hides behind its civilians.

They are being hosted with CU’s newest Israel Advocacy group, Buffed Up On Israel.

This event is sponsored by StandWithUs and Buffed Up On Israel, as well as Israel on Campus Coalition, Avi Chai, and CUFI on Campus.
