Israel Peace Week

Israel and its supporters want peace. While detractors do nothing to promote peace or dialogue and prefer to simply attack Israel, our goal is to set a positive pro-peace agenda  One way to do this is to put on  events such as  an Israel Peace Week. Feel free to create your Israel Peace Week from scratch or look at the successful model already created by student activists around the country.

Program Ideas

A. Café Poetry Slam and Decorating for Democracy

  • Goal: Promoting Israel’s pursuit of peace through song, art, & poetry.
  • Collect English & Hebrew Israeli songs, poems, or stories about peace and find activists to perform and read them in a public campus setting.
  • Set up a table with free cookies shaped as peace signs/doves to decorate.

B. Museum of Cooperation

  • Collect pictures, quotes, articles, maps that show Israeli peace efforts.
  • Reserve and set up a large public display that will draw in students such as an unusual shape or maze.
  • Place informed volunteers around to provide more information.

C. Israel Diversity Day

D. Academic Simulation of Conflict Resolution

Speak with a professor knowledgeable about the Arab-Israeli dispute to see if he or she would be interested in holding a peace talks simulation. If a professor is not available, check out the Peace Maker Game online.

E. Mock Israeli Election

Hold a mock Israeli election to teach students about the Israeli political system. Contact Hasbara for free political party postcards.
