This week saw 24 Israeli students from a pluralistic background visit UK university campuses to show the real Israel, in a mission co-hosted by the Union of Jewish Students of the United Kingdom and supported by WUJS. The ‘What Is Rael’ delegation was widely considered a remarkable success and has had hugely positive feedback from both Jewish and non-Jewish students.
The Jerusalem post covered the article, along with various Hebrew publications, as the grass-roots initiative won plaudits for its new approach to Hasbarah.
