Tweets for Israel
Posted on 08/19/2012 @ 10:00 AM
Before we began our Shabbat programming on Friday evening we were led by our Grand Shaliach Benji Fages and International Sh'licha Andie Djamal for a program about Israel and the different ways that we could individually and collectively support Israel.
It was a really interesting program and great to hear the different ideas and perspectives from the Execs Body.
At the conclusion of the program we were able to write our own pledges for how we would like to support Israel. Then we made our pledges digital! We got onto our phones and tweeted our commitment to @ISRAEL. We shared our promises with different Heads of State, media outlets and Jewish and Israeli agencies.
This activity started at August Execs with 85 teens tweeting about Israel and in less than 30 minutes our tweets had made more than 100,000 impression and soon teens from around the world were joining us to pledge their own support.
This was a great example of the ways we can mobilize and globalize for our campaigns and initiatives this year.
