The UK’s fastest growing pro-Israel movement, We Believe in Israel, has launched a new network for the under 35’s – Young We Believe in Israel.
We Believe in Israel now has more than 16,000 activists campaigning for Israel across the UK after recruiting more than 8,000 activists in two years.
Launching the new network, We Believe in Israel Director Luke Akehurst said:
“We now have more than 16,000 activists across the country working tirelessly for Israel. We wanted to bring some of the creativity, energy and dynamism from our older activists and build a new network for young people.
“We realised there is a serious gap after university when people want to stay involved and support Israel but often don’t find a group that suits them. Young We Believe in Israel is open to anyone in the UK under 35 who supports Israel. It is committed to a two state solution, but completely pluralistic. We believe that the best way to an authentic and powerful grassroots movement is to support debate and an open exchange of views.”
“We have been working with UJS and the Zionist youth movements to create this new network that will build on their incredible achievements and offer their members a new home after University.”
Young We Believe in Israel will focus on:
Israel activism – social media campaigns and local community activity.
Speaker events with guests from the UK and Israel combined with opportunities to enjoy Israeli food, drink and music.
Helping young people to understand the complexity of Israel, the Middle East and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Developing campaign techniques and debating skills.
