Israel On Campus
Our Israel On Campus club is your one stop shop for everything Israel.
Whether it is Israeli cooking classes, Hebrew lessons (Ulpan Shmulpan’, guest speakers, celebrating Israeli holidays, or just hanging out with our Israel Fellow and dreaming about the breach, the IOC provides our students with incredible Israeli programming all year round.
We also do important outreach and advocacy work and ensure that BDS will never come to our campus. Last year our team defeated three BDS motions, and ensured that our campus was a safe and accepting place for all students.
There is some packaged kosher food available on campus in stores. Off-campus, there are:

2018-2019 was our first year participating in JAFI’s Israel Fellow program, and the addition of an Israeli Shliach to our campus has been incredible. Whether it is fun and innovative Israel programming, meaningful 1-1 relationships, or help in combatting BDS, our Shliach adds a taste of Israel that you won’t get anywhere else
