Hasbara Fellowships Canada is the country’s largest grassroots pro-Israel campus advocacy organization. Founded in 2001, Hasbara Fellowships Canada brings the country’s top pro-Israel student leaders on a two-and-a-half week high-level strategic advocacy training program where students learn cutting-edge strategies to apply on their campus in the face of anti-Israel propaganda.
Upon their return to campus, our full-time staff work with these student leaders, helping them to implement and execute their newfound skills to maximum effect. Taking a proactive approach that seeks to set the agenda, and not simply respond to it, our staff and students have seen successes in areas such as coalition building, social media, student government, campus media, and more.
Hasbara Fellowships Canada is present on campuses across Canada, and to date, has nearly 700 alumni who have participated in our training program in Israel. Many of these alumni are now in leadership positions, including at CJPAC, CIJA, Israel’s embassy in Canada, Simon Wiesenthal Centre, and more.
