Upcoming TBE Trips to Israel
Meet ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) New England
Monday, October 22, 7:30 pm
Hear first-hand about the important work that ZOA does, including working to protect Jewish college and high school students from intimidation, harassment and discrimination, and fighting anti-Semitism in general. Also, learn how ZOA brought a lawsuit against the State Department for ignoring the law requiring that “Jerusalem, Israel” be stamped on the passports of U.S. citizens who are born there. ZOA fought this fight alone, one which is still playing out.
