As the world grapples with the ongoing events in Israel, it’s crucial to hear firsthand accounts from those directly affected. Join us on November 15th at 7:00 PM at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus for an insightful and impactful panel discussion titled “Perspectives on War: Stories from on Campus, in Communities, on the Battlefront.”
Our distinguished panel features three remarkable individuals, each with a unique story that sheds light on the situation in Israel.
Lidar, a 25-year-old Jewish Agency Israel Fellow, shares his experiences from Ness Zionna. With a background in education through the Jewish Agency greenhouse program, Lidar has been instrumental in significantly increasing engagement at SLO Hillel. Now faced with the task of addressing the growing insecurity felt by Jewish students on campus, Lidar, alongside his fellow Shlichim, is combating misinformation and hatred to create a safer environment.
Aya Margalit, the Jewish Agency Senior Shlicha to Temple Emanuel in Dallas, brings a decade of experience working with the Temple’s camp. Despite personal losses in the tragic events of October 7th, Aya remains committed to her mission. Join us as she shares her compelling story and that of her community, offering a poignant perspective on the resilience and determination that drives her work.
Nadav Eylon, the Jewish Agency Regional Director to the West Coast, also holds a dual role as a Major in the IDF Special Forces and a Magen David Adom EMT. Having spent two weeks in Israel serving with his unit in Gaza and as an MDA Medic following the October 7th attack, Nadav’s dedication to both his community in the Arava and his responsibilities in the Western region exemplifies the strength and commitment required to navigate these challenging times.
This event promises to be an eye-opening exploration of personal narratives and the broader implications of the current situation in Israel. As we come together on November 15th, let’s amplify these voices and gain a deeper understanding of the human stories behind the headlines.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to engage with these inspiring individuals. Join us at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus on November 15th at 7:00 PM for an evening of reflection, empathy, and solidarity.
