Our Mission The David Project Center for Jewish Leadership is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote a fair and honest understanding of the Arab-Israeli conflict. We work to develop educated, skilled and courageous leaders to defeat the ideological assault on Israel that is taking place on campuses, in high schools, in churches and in the general community.
The David Project responds to a new time
This is a new time for the Jewish people. Israel is depicted as the cruelest among nations, and falsely singled out as the primary cause of conflict in the Middle East and in the world. The ideological onslaught against the Jewish State â€“ in the media, mainstream churches, and on campus â€“ masquerades as legitimate criticism but is in reality an unfair and dishonest discourse which vilifies and delegitimizes Israel â€“ and her supporters. This is, in effect, a new form of hatred.
By promoting a fair and honest understanding of the Arab-Israeli conflict, The David Project leads the ideological effort against the forces intent on defaming, weakening and destroying the Jewish State.
The David Project is committed to building Jewish leadership; increasing the support for Israel on campus; strengthening the pro-Israel and pro-Jewish sentiments and friendships within churches; and working in partnership with Jewish day schools and synagogue after-school programs to incorporate Israel advocacy and leadership skills into their core curricula.
Our educational workshops offer a concise, systematic approach to understanding the Arab-Israeli conflict. Rather than train people to simply refute lies and distortions, this approach focuses on reframing the conflict along its physical, historical, and moral dimensions. Our seminars emphasize the values and logic that help make Israelâ€™s case and offer easy-to-use tools and techniques.
The David Project helps students and adults become more effective advocates for Israel. Our educational workshops can be delivered as a 90-minute lecture or as a three-hour interactive session.
For more information on how to bring our workshops to your synagogue, school, church or community center, please call (617)428-0012 or email email@example.com
Defeating Divestment at University of Michigan March 17, 2006
â€I am a sophomore in the LSA organizational studies program and I am a Co-Founder of the Israel IDEA, a student organization that promotes dialogue and education about human rights and Israelâ€™s role in the Middle East. I am here today to speak out against Divestment from Israel and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for allowing me to speak.
Campus Support The David Project Center for Jewish Leadership works with pro-Israel students to develop strategies for combating anti-Israel sentiment in and outside of the classroom. The David Project serves as a resource for pro-Israel campus activism. We provide consulting services, educational workshops which train students to become articulate Israel advocates, distribute The David Project films, â€œThe Forgotten Refugees,â€ and â€œColumbia Unbecoming,â€ and lead seminars for college students in the summer in a four-day intensive Israel-advocacy and leadership program.
