Young Jews Address New Campus Threats at CAMERA’s Annual Student Conference
From the algemeiner.com
JNS.org – More than 80 students from nearly 70 campuses will be in Boston from July 29 to Aug. 1 for a high-level training conference on how to successfully respond to campus antisemitism and anti-Israel activism.
The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) is hosting the conference. The organization is providing all the students with a free trip to Boston to attend four full days of lectures, discussions and workshops.

Being the only Jew most of my students had ever met forced me to confront my Jewish identity.
“No other religion speaks about themselves with the same lack of commitment as Jews do,” the Birthright speaker, whose name escapes me, said to our group. “You've never heard someone say that they are Catholic-ish or Protestant-ish. They are Catholics. They are Protestants. We are Jews. It's not a derogatory term and we shouldn't be afraid to use it.”
Jewish Mindfulness in Action
This video was produced with the Bar and Bat Mitzvah class at Jvillage Network member, B'nai Jeshurun Congregation, of Pepper Pike, OH.
Being intentional with our actions is hard work! BimBam and B’nai Jeshurun worked together to create this animation with the synagogue’s 2015 B’nai Mitzvah class. In it we look at mindfulness and how it relates to living life with Jewish values always in front you. Keeping this mindset is important in everything from the botched sacrifices of Nadav and Avihu to everyday decisions like not talking on a cell phone while driving or eating (turkey) bacon and eggs.
