Today, anti-Israel sentiment is spreading in the
media and academia. Anti-Israel groups are well-
funded and well-organized, and they specialize in
persuading Jewish and non-Jewish people of all
ages to turn against Israel.
As supporters of Israel, we realize Jewish teens
and young adults are in danger of losing their
Jewish identities including their cultural and
spiritual connections to Israel.
How we do it:
• ZOA-MI Israel Education Scholarship Program
This program for high school students brings
teens together to learn about Israel's history,
Jewish heritage and how to advocate for
Program participants are eligible to apply
for a special ZOA-MI scholarship to help fund
an Israel experience.

• Advocacy on College and University
We've formed partnerships with young lead-
ers at several of Michigan's college campuses
including the University of Michigan, Michigan
State University and Wayne State University.
Through jointly sponsored debates, rallies
and educational programs, we strive to raise
awareness and combat anti-Israel sentiment.
