New York, NY (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
High school seniors throughout the U.S. will unite Sunday night, February 17th, for a free advocacy training webinar with Neil Lazarus of Awesome Seminars, one of Israels leading educators and communication experts.
The event is a joint effort of JerusalemOnlineU.coms Step Up For Israel campaign and Write On For Israel, a program of the Jewish Week of NY, designed to equip teens with the knowledge and tools to defend Israel. The program will include a screening of the award-winning documentary film "Israel Inside: How a Small Nation Makes a Big Difference," and a discussion of how such messages can help change the way the world views Israel.
As a participant in a two-year Israel advocacy training program, I often feel like the only one of my peers who has any understanding of the biases Israel faces in the media, said Leeza Hirt, a Write On For Israel student. I am excited that now my friends will also have the opportunity to learn how to defend Israel before we go off to college, next year.
