Its mission is to engage Jewish teens, provide quality Israel education and advocacy skills, and prepare students’ for their transition from their home communities to their future college campuses.

Through CFD HSE, students take part in open dialogue about their connection to Israel, their role as Jewish teens and the challenges they face as Israel advocates. Students learn about Israel through a variety of educational modules which provide them with the needed knowledge, skills, and strategies to advocate for Israel. All programs are taught through interactive and media-rich presentations and by experts in their fields.

Module topics include:

  • Effective Advocacy Skills;
  • Israeli Culture and Society;
  • Contemporary Issues and Current Events in Israel;
  • Being Pro-Israel and Being Critical of Israel is it OK?;
  • Critically Analyzing Israel in the Media.

The program also brings resources to participating schools: a prominent keynote speaker to talk to students from the heart about the importance of advocating for Israel; a panel of college Israel activists who speak about the challenges they face regarding Israel on campus; and action items which students can apply in their communities and on campus to start acting on behalf of Israel.
