Students Supporting Israel's Second National Conference: More Than a Success!
Students Supporting Israel hosted our second national conference on August 13 - 15, 2016 in Minneapolis, the birthplace of SSI. With 68 students in attendance, we had an innovative, educational, and full of hands on activities weekend. The conference also made students put themselves into real life campus situations in order to be prepared for this upcoming school year.
Whether the students were from Santa Monica College in California or from Pace University in New York, they were all able to unite around one main platform, which is their support for Israel. The students shared ideas and experiences, and formed new friendships.
This SSI conference was an excellent way to end the summer, and prepare to start the new school year! We would like to thank all of the participants and sponsors that helped make this year's conference possible!
A special thank you also goes to the individuals who sent us their video messages for the conference:
Amb. Danny Dannon, Permanant Representative of Israel to the United Nations.
Minister Gilad Erdan, Minister of Public Security, Strategic Affairs and Minister of Information.
Minister Ofir Akunis, Minister of Science, Technology and Space.
Rep. Eric Paulsen, United States House of Representatives for Minnesota's 3rd congressional district
The news about the conference even reached Israel's news outlets. Thank you Channel 2 for the article!
