Join us for a first-ever international summit at the UN on ways to confront national boycotts and delegitimization
The BDS movement continues to make strides in its campaign to delegitimize the State of Israel. The movement is gaining increased support on campuses around the world as it promotes initiatives on local and national levels calling to divest and boycott the Jewish state.
Israel’s Mission to the United Nations in partnership with the World Jewish Congress, ACLJ, Israel Bonds, Keren Hayesod, StandWithUS and B’nai B’rith International, will host an international gathering of students, organizations and agencies from around the world, to join efforts, form a unified plan of action and cultivate ambassadors ready to fight the battle against exclusion and delegitimization of nations and peoples, while promoting understanding and respect.
This conference will take place on May 31, 2016, and 1,500 student leaders and Jewish community leaders are invited to attend. It will include an opening plenary session in the UN General Assembly Hall and a series of professional panels related to the topic of confronting BDS.

B'nai B'rith Breadbreakers • Rose Blumkin Jewish Home Auditorium • Wednesday, Noon to 1 pm • March 2, 2016
We are most fortunate to have Dr. Pam Berger speak to Breadbreakers. The talented professor from Boston College is in Omaha to speak at the Missouri Valley History Conference.
At Breadbreakers, she will talk about her newest book, The Crescent on the Temple.
She is referring, of course, to the “Temple Mount,” the Jerusalem home to the Dome of the Rock, a Muslim shrine and the “Western Wall,” of the first and second Temple. Both Jews and Muslims claim the area as Holy. It is also within a stone’s throw of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, built on the site over which Jesus was crucified.
Hmmm. The Temple Mount. A holy area in which the interests of the Jews, Christians and Muslims intersect. What could go wrong?
The professor has a great PowerPoint presentation and is interested in a conversation with our group.
This should be fascinating and I hope will be able to attend the program with our esteemed guest.
