Hasbara Fellowships Canada

Hasbara Canada trains and empowers student leaders to advocate for the Jewish People and educate their fellow students about Israel as a vital part of our Jewish identity. Our flagship program brings students to Israel for an on-the-ground experience where they learn from Israelis and Palestinians alike. Our educational programs for high school students teach them about Jews as an indigenous people, Zionism, and how to effectively combat antisemitism.In the face of increased antisemitism and anti-Israel discrimination on campus and online, Hasbara Fellows and High School Interns are active in educating other students about Zionism, building coalitions with student clubs, challenging anti-Israel professors, writing influential editorials in student media, and combating BDS and antisemitism on campus.
