“In regards to my activism activities. I was born in Israel and grew up in Moscow, Russia. After that I went to Syracuse University and then ended up in Madrid where I studied at IE business school and am now still living and working in Madrid. I have always been outspoken towards Israel. In the US I was part of StandWithUs Syracuse Chapter where we hosted certain educational events. Except that I have never been involved in any formal activism except my own. I always have dialogues with people and try to educate them about Israel and the reality on the ground compared to what is in the media. For a few months during the Pandemic, I also had been using apps to join many different Israel conversations whilst trying to have a dialogue and support Israel while once again educating and clearing up any misconceptions towards Israel. I would love to learn from this group and get some “formal” training and continue supporting Israel in whatever ways I can. As well it will allow me to better understand the situation in Europe and around the world. Lastly, I  wish to know how to best react to the things that go on in regards to Israel.”
