Plan ahead for Israel Advocacy Skills Training
Advanced workshops from an Israeli expert
Book now for November 2017
BDS is on the Run
The campaign to demonize Israel to the point that people will boycott, divest from, and sanction the Jewish state has been running for nearly two decades. At least in the US and Canada it is now being beaten again and again. Legislatures around the United States have passed anti-BDS laws and resolutions, as has the Canadian Province of Ontario. Many campus BDS resolutions have been defeated (even in the UC system where they usually succeed). Even the hip young Canadian Prime Minister has condemned the antisemitic movement.
Victories don’t just happen
BDS has been pushed back by the hard work of a number of national organizations in the US and Canada along with front line campaigning by grass roots activists. Anti-Israel groups are not, unfortunately, giving up, and continued success against them demands dedication, information and skills. I have more than three decades of experience teaching Israel advocacy skills to groups ranging from the staff of major Jewish organizations to campus volunteers.
I will be in North America in November, running Israel advocacy skills training workshops for campus and community groups who want to upgrade their abilities to advocate for Israel. Among those who have profited from my workshops are
I will be in North America from at the beginning of February, running
Israel advocacy skills training workshops for campus and community
groups who want to upgrade their abilities to advocate for Israel. Among those who have profited from my workshops are
- Israel’s diplomats and emissaries,
- the staff of major Jewish organizations,
- Jewish Federations and JCRCs, as well as
- student and community activists around the world.
Subjects covered include:
- Why is it so hard to get people to accept our messages? How can we make them compelling? Learn about CENTRAL versus PERIPHERAL PROCESSING OF INFORMATION and ANALYTICS versus HEURISTICS.
- CONCEPTUAL FRAMING: How to go off the defensive and seize the initiative.
- CAMPAIGNING: How to move from events to sustained campaigns.
Dates and details
I know that some organizations plan their events well in advance, so I’m sending you this “heads up” to let you know that I’ll be in North America from November 12 through 22, 2017. If you would like me to visit your community, organization or school, please be in touch regarding fees, available dates and logistics.

David’s workshop brings a new and thoughtful perspective to advocacy. His presentation on having the information to advocate, techniques to convey the information, and a forum to advocate in, equips communities with the tools they need to become effective Israel advocates.
Jewish Community Relations Council, Greater Miami Jewish Federation
In my 25 years of work with media, communications, education and training within the Jewish community, I have met no one who does what David does even half as well.
Of the plethora of Jewish- and Israel-oriented educational programming I have implemented in forty states and a dozen other countries, David Olesker’s programs were the ones students most told me they found to have fundamentally changed and enhanced their understanding.
