A group of our most promising and committed Israel advocates participate in all activities related to AIPAC - American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Our students join other high school students from more than 130 public and private academic institutions across the country at the AIPAC annual Schusterman Advocacy Institute High School Summit in Washington. They receive intensive training in pro-Israel political advocacy and participate in individual congressional appointments focusing on the value of the U.S.-Israel alliance. AIPAC’s Early Engagement program provides a unique empowerment vehicle for teens interested in supporting Israel through the American political process. Participation in this program provides student activists with the tools they need to be effective advocates within the political arena and encourages them to make the case for the U.S.-Israel relationship. Other Israel Advocacy venues offered by NSHAHS include the David Project and our yearly Israel Advocacy Seminar for seniors.
NORTH SHORE STUDENTS GO TO WASHINGTON, D.C. FOR AIPAC
Our wonderful NS students spent Sunday and Monday, October 29th and 30th, 2017, in workshops for AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) learning about Israel advocacy, public speaking, and how to lobby. We just walked out of a lobby session where they greatly impressed the legislative assistant for Thomas Suozzi of Long Island's District 3. I’m so proud of their hard work and the great job that they did! The students hope that when they come back to school they can utilize their newfound skills and create even more Israel awareness in school.
