An army of ambassadors: NGO trains troops to defend Israel during post-army trek


Before release from the military, Israeli soldiers undergo a course from ‘ISRAEL-is,’ teaching them how to better speak about Israel. For many young Israelis, trips after the military are a rite of passage, during which they often spend time with non-Israelis, both locals and fellow backpackers, not all of whom necessarily have positive feelings toward the State of Israel. With this in mind Eyal Biram, founder of Israel-is, saw an opportunity: These masses of recently released soldiers travelling across the world could be “ambassadors” for Israel.  Read Here

ISRAEL-is is a non-profit, apolitical, grassroots organization that aims to improve the international perceptions of Israel through personal connections. It was founded in 2017 by three officers in an elite IDF unit. Upon returning from their travels abroad, they realized there was an unprecedented opportunity not being utilized for young Israeli travelers to connect with foreigners and influence their perceptions of Israel. Their understanding is that each Israeli backpacker has their own view and story about Israel. The goal of ISRAEL-is is to provide them with the skills and tools to share their perspectives and personal stories, creating more meaningful interactions in order to challenge the stereotypes people have about Israel. The organization believes that these P2P (peer-to-peer) encounters are the next step of rejuvenating Israel’s public diplomacy and helping to create a change in Israel’s global image.

“Combat anti-Semitism (CAM) is a non-partisan, global grassroots movement of interfaith individuals and organizations united to combat anti-Semitism. CAM exposes anti-Semitic activity from across the ideological spectrum and highlights those working to fight against its resurgence. One of the most pernicious forms of modern anti-Semitism is the effort to deny and delegitimize the Jewish people’s right to self-determination and their profound historic, religious and cultural connection to their ancestral homeland, Israel. Humanity flourishes when religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity is respected, and we hope to encourage understanding and set an example through our work. Anti-Semitism is the oldest form of bigotry and by working to eliminate it, we hope tragedies like the holocaust or any incidents of hate inspired speech or violence perpetrated against the Jewish people, Israel, or any discriminated group are reduced significantly.”
