My email has been flooded every time I check it.
Which is a good thing, considering the situation in Israel and the nature of the emails.
Earlier this year I put myself on the listerv for the Penn Israel Coalition (UPenn’s pro-Israel organization.) While they get a lot of their information–especially now–from Stand With Us, the organization is a great resource for updates on what’s going on in Israel, policies, and also pro-Israel events.
I get similar emails from the Jewish Federation, although those are more specifically related to Chicago and Chicago area events.
But perhaps the best tool since the most recent und of fighting began is facebook. Facebook has a plethora of pro–Israel groups (and, unfortunately, many groups that are full of hate against Israel). Facebook’s ability to communicate quickly with people around your school and around the country makes it the ideal location for sharing information about the situation, news updates, and announcements about pro-Israel rallies and events going together. Especially since many of the rallies have been put together very quickly, the high turnout is astonishingly impressive, and much of it is due to Facebook.
B’hatzlacha, good luck, in your advocacy!
